Diagnostic algorithms and treatment strategies in primary aortic and aortic graft infections

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Aortic infections and aortic graft infections are one of the most dreadful clinical entities that a vascular surgeon can face. Clinical presentation of the patient can vary greatly and diagnosis can be difficult to make. In this manuscript, diagnostic modalities are reviewed and a diagnostic algorithm suggested. Further, results of present treatment options are evaluated and treatment strategies for different clinical scenarios suggested.
