Yale Center for Thoracic Aortic Disease

The Yale Center for Thoracic Aortic Disease is certainly one of the first, if not the very first, formally designated such center. It is now one of the largest centers in the world for clinical care of patients with aneurysms. We also have one of the most active centers for basic science and clinical research in aortic diseases. 

Our team at Yale has contributed substantially to the level of knowledge regarding aortic diseases. We aim, through research and expert clinical care, to keep aneurysm patients safe from this virulent disease.
