CONCLUSIONS Considering both the aging patient population in Western societies with prolonged survival despite hypertension and the better diagnostic strategies available to more patients, cardiology and the cardiovascular community face an increasing incidence of acute and chronic aortic problems that desperately need to be stratified using both early biomarkers of an inflammatory and dissecting process and functional imaging of the aortic wall. At this pivotal point in time, an elevated level of awareness in clinical cardiology and the availability of modern imaging technology should trigger interest in diagnosing and treating the complex of acute aortic syndromes similar to previous efforts in acute coronary syndromes.
