Despite significant differences in risk factors, demographics and socioeconomics between Black and white patients with acute type B aortic dissection, similar management and outcomes can be achieved.
Multidisciplinary management with emergency primary aortic repair and additional peripheral revascularization can improve outcomes, especially when delivered in a timely manner.
We’re using our ambulatory blood pressure monitoring program to assess the prevalence of masked hypertension in cardiac rehab patients and potentially improve hypertension control in people with aortic dissection.
A national database analysis suggests that antiplatelet drugs may play a protective role in cases of AAA before surgery is warranted. The authors outline next research steps.

A 17-year-old patient with a homozygous mutation in MYBPC3, who underwent orthotopic heart transplantation, presents with persistent cough. Work-up leads to finding of asymptomatic aortic dissection. In this case study, pediatric cardiologist Kenneth Zahka, MD, points to the need for pediatric-specific guidelines for intervention in post-orthotopic heart transplant patients with known aortic dilatation.
Even when repair of acute aortic dissection is successful, risk of progressive aneurysmal degeneration of the residual aorta remains. We share takeaways from a case requiring multistage operations over 15 years.
From an unprecedented scope of content to lively pacing to an unmatched expert faculty, this symposium will explore the multidisciplinary care of aortic dissection like never before.
A large retrospective analysis shows that systematic use of an initial axillary artery cannulation strategy is feasible, effective and readily adaptable to individual patient needs.
A retrospective study has found that most patients who underwent emergency aortic root replacement had a root diameter smaller than guideline cutoffs for prophylactic surgery.
Despite its malignant prognosis, this connective tissue disorder marked by early aortic dissection is far from unmanageable. One of the largest series reported to date proves the point.
