Heritable Thoracic Aortic Diseases Registry

The HTAD registry collects data from patients with rare vascular diseases who are being treated at various expert centres across Europe. Its primary objective is to enhance our understanding of these rare diseases through various research endeavors, such as natural history studies, genotype-phenotype correlations, population comparisons, and cross-country care comparisons.
