Program Description

“Managing the Aorta: From Aneurysm Screening to Acute Dissection: Q&A” is a follow-up to the June 6th webinar where the Columbia faculty discussed innovative treatment strategies for patients with aortic aneurysms and dissections. The response to the first webinar was so robust, that we felt it was important to dedicate a follow-up webinar to addressing the multitude of questions sent in by live viewers. Our experts Dr. Virendra I. Patel, Dr. Hiroo Takayama, and Annie Yu, NP, will now also be joined by Dr. David Engel, cardiologist.
