AD-Day Aortic Disease Awareness Day
Ospedale San Raffaele, Milano
Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele, Milano
19 Settembre 2019
“Today is a good day” è il motto scelto dalle associazioni di pazienti e famigliari
che hanno istituito la giornata mondiale dedicata alle patologie aortiche (19 settembre),
attualmente sotto l’egida della Marfan Foundation, per richiamare l’attenzione su patologie
complesse, ancora molto difficili da diagnosticare e da curare.
Stimolati da questa iniziativa abbiamo deciso di organizzare, per la seconda volta,
insieme a un momento di incontro con i pazienti e le famiglie, anche un meeting monotematico
sulla dissezione aortica rivolto agli addetti ai lavori. Gli esperti, Colleghi italiani e stranieri,
hanno accolto con slancio l’invito a illustrare le ultime acquisizioni nell’ambito della diagnosi
e del trattamento open ed endovascolare delle patologie aortiche.
Vi diamo appuntamento al San Raffaele per quello che speriamo possa essere un momento
fruttuoso di scambio e di approfondimento.
Clicca qui per il programma ufficiale dell'evento.

“Today is a good day” is the motto chosen by the associations of patients
and families for the “Aortic Disease Awareness Day” (September 19th), currently under the
auspices of the Marfan Foundation, planned to promote awareness throughout the world
for these complex diseases, still difficult to identify and treat.
Together with the AD Awareness event for patients and their families, we are organising,
for the second time, a meeting focused on aortic dissection, for medical doctors.
Italian and international experts in the field have accepted enthusiastically the invitation
to join the faculty and discuss recent achievements in the diagnosis and open and
endovascular treatment of aortic disease.
We look forward to welcoming you at San Raffaele Hospital for what we hope will be an
enjoyable and educational meeting.

From London with Love: A benefit concert to raise awareness for Aortic Health
Saturday, September 21, 8-11 pm
River City Extreme
3875 School Blvd.
Monticello, MN  55362

Rock from the Heart (RFTH) formed after its founder survived aortic aneurysm and aortic valve replacement surgery. The organization supports heart disease education and awareness programs with a primary focus on aortic health. Thoracic aortic aneurysms are rare, occurring in approximately 6-10 per every 100,000 people. About 20% of those cases are linked to family history. Because the disease is rare, there is limited information available to those at risk and to those diagnosed with the condition. RFTH aims to change that by holding events that bring the condition into the forefront, committed to increasing public awareness of the factors that put people at risk for thoracic aortic disease, and to improving the diagnosis and management of these life-threatening conditions. RFTH will also support programs and organizations working to bring high quality cardiovascular care to rural communities and smaller hospitals. RFTH will focus on developing resources designed to improve the diagnosis, treatment and management of aortic disease by advocating for early detection, meaningful support, and timely access to appropriate treatment for all people affected.
