Aortopathy are conditions that affect the aorta, the main artery supplying the heart with oxygenated blood. The aorta can become enlarged or weakened, which disrupts blood flow. Aortic dilation can be a key feature in genetic dosorders, such as Marfan, Loeys-Dietz, vascular Ehlers-Danlos, aneurysm-osteoarthritis and TAAD.
