    Introduction. Reconstruction of chronic type B dissection and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) remaining after the emergency reconstruction of the ascending thoracic aorta and aortic arch for acute type A dissection represents one of the major surgical challenges. Complications of chronic...

    Abstract: Objective: The study was aimed at determining which cardiac pathologies are associated with increased longitudinal stress in the aorta and therefore may be responsible for the intimal transverse tears seen in aortic dissections. Methods: Aortic root contrast injections were analyzed in...

    Aortic dissection causes acute aortic regurgitation in one half to two thirds of cases, which is due, mainly, to dilatation of the aortic root. The unsupported intimal flap prolapse, which crosses the aortic valve, rarely produces aortic regurgitation. Moreover, transient myocardial ischemia...
