AORTA – Official Journal of the Aortic Institute at Yale-New Haven Hospital is devoted to diseases of the aorta, both thoracic and abdominal with both occlusive and aneurysm disease being covered.
This journal focuses directly on the aorta and its first-order branches (innominate, carotid, subclavian, celiac axis, superior mesenteric artery, renal arteries, and iliac arteries). No other journal has this direct focus on the aorta. Articles cover topics related to imaging of aortic diseases, natural history of aortic diseases, surgical treatment of aortic diseases, percutaneous ('non-invasive') treatment of aortic diseases, new operations for these diseases, and new medical/surgical products and technologies for the care of patients with aortic disease. Also, basic scientific articles on aortic and great vessel disease along with clinical series and laboratory reports are welcome. Reports dealing with the intrathoracic great vessels and the proximal origins of the abdominal visceral arteries and trauma topics are also covered.

The journal appeals to a multidisciplinary group of specialists, including cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, cardiologists, vascular radiologists, interventional radiologists, cardiovascular anesthesiologists, engineers, and basic science researchers in vascular medicine.


AORTA requires that authors follow the ICMJE (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors) recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly work in Medical Journals. More information can be found here:
