This is the newly published latest version of Guideline on Diagnosis and Treatment of Aortic Aneurysm and Aortic Dissection developed by the Japanese Circulation Society, Japanese Society for Cardiovascular Surgery, Japanese Association for Thoracic Surgery, and Japanese Society for Vascular Surgery. Compared to the 2022 ACC/AHA Guidelines on Aortic Disease, the Japanese document discusses the following topics in more detail, along with 86 figures and 1,943 references, which may warrant careful study. Topics included definition, pathogenesis, and epidemiology; pathology; symptoms, examinations, and diagnosis; selection of treatment; treatment for aortic aneurysm; treatment for aortic dissection, issues associated with aortic surgery, other aortic diseases; rehabilitation; and various issues of medical treatment for aortic diseases.
