The dilated or aneurysmal ascending aorta is at risk for spontaneous rupture or dissection. The magnitude of this risk is closely related to the size of the aorta and the underlying pathology of the aortic wall. The occurrence of rupture or dissection adversely alters natural history and survival even after successful emergency surgical treatment.What is the normal diameter of the ascending aorta?
What is the normal size of an ascending aorta? The normal diameter of the ascending aorta has been defined as <2.1 cm/m2 and of the descending aorta as <1.6 cm/m2. The normal diameter of the abdominal aorta is regarded to be less than 3.0 cm.
