The DeBakey classification divides dissections into 1-5: type I: involves ascending and descending aorta (= Stanford A) type II: involves ascending aorta only (= Stanford A) type III: involves descending aorta only, commencing after the origin of the left subclavian artery (= Stanford B)Are there different types of aortic dissections?
There are two types of aortic dissections: Type A which is the more common and dangerous of the two and involves a tear in the part of the aorta where it exits the heart or a tear in the upper, or ascending aorta, which may extend into the abdomen.What is the survival rate of an aortic dissection?
in its natural evolution, without treatment, acute type a aortic dissection reportedly has a mortality rate of about 1% per hour initially, with half of the patients expected to be dead by the 3rd day, and almost 80% by the end of the 2nd week. 3 death rates are lower but still significant in acute type b aortic dissection: 10% minimum at 30 …What are the initial therapeutic goals for aortic dissection?
The aim of treatment in aortic dissection is to limit propagation of the false lumen and its negative consequences on end-organ perfusion by reducing and stabilizing hemodynamic stress on the aortic wall (1-8). As the majority of these type B dissection patients are hypertensive, medical therapy is centered on the use of anti-hypertensive agents.
