Supranational (international) guidelines for heritable thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection

[Clinical recommendations]
Andrey Rudoy;

Supranational (international) guidelines for heritable thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection were developed by the experts committee of the Eurasian Association of Internists, Belarusian Scientific Society of Cardiologists and Russian Scientific Medical Society of Internal Medicine, and approved by the II Congress of the Eurasian Association of Internists on 19–20 May 2016 (Yerevan), as well as by the VII Congress of Cardiologists, Cardiosurgeons, X-ray Endovascular and Vascular Surgeons of the Republic of Belarus on 15–16 December 2016 (Minsk).
