ABSTRACTThe aorta was saw has a tube who transport blood from the heart to all the human economy, today we see the aorta like an specific organ who not only is design to transport the blood and it is elements, the aorta also produce hormones and elements of the inflammatory responds and control the systemic pressure. That’s why the aorta has it specific illness. In the entire world the pathology of the aorta is quite frequent with the appearance of a lot of new cases and occupies a predominant place in the general mortality of countries like United States of America, Japan or Brazil. This pathology needs the utilization of large amounts of economics, human and structural resources. In Mexico do not have the statistical information of the aortic illness because it is few diagnosed, and when induce death it confusing to another diseases. In the present time with the new no invasive diagnostic methods more approachable to the general population this disease is easier to diagnose. That is why he need to develop a multidisciplinary specialize group who can make the diagnosed and do the specific treatment for these disease.
