The reliability of the method and the simplicity of the execution of the Doppler examination allowed us to use it as a diagnostic help in the dissecting aneurysms of the aorta and in the hiatrogenetic dissections of the great vessels. The findings carried out are peculiar from the point of view ‘acoustic’ and from the point of view ‘morphologic’ and in part they depend on the type of the vascular dissection.
