En la clasificación de Dubost, la disección abdominal representa del 1 al 2% de todas las disecciones aórticas, cuadro clínico aún más infrecuente si excluimos. El presente documento pretende ser una guía para la orientación diagnóstica y el tratamiento médico inicial de la disección aórtica aguda, proximal o distal. RESUMEN. Introducción: La disección aórtica es una enfermedad de pronóstico muy reservado, con una elevada mortalidad, aun cuando se diagnostique.

The dissection may dilate the annulus of the aortic valveso that the leaflets of the valve cannot coapt. Indications for the surgical treatment of aortic dissection include an acute proximal aortic dissection and an acute distal aortic dissection with one or more complications. Contrast is injected and the scan performed using a bolus tracking method. The reason disecciln surgical repair of type A dissections is that ascending aortic dissections often involve the aortic valve, which, having lost its suspensory support, telescopes down into the aortic root, resulting in aortic incompetence.

Ritter was initially misdiagnosed and subsequently treated for a heart attack. Accurate measurement of the blood pressure is important. Repair may be recommended when greater than 4. Complicated Stanford type B aortic dissections require surgical intervention after medical therapy is initiated. Prevention is by blood pressure control and not smoking.

Individuals with Marfan syndrome tend to have aneurysms of the aorta and are more prone to proximal dissections of the aorta. These new aneurysms are more likely to rupture, due to their thinner walls. In addition, many individuals experience claustrophobia while in the MRI scanning tube.

Computed aorica angiography is a fast, noninvasive test that gives an accurate three-dimensional view of the aorta. Individuals who present two diswccion after the onset of the dissection are said to have chronic aortic dissections.

Due to the high-intensity magnetic fields used during MRI, it is contraindicated in individuals with metallic implants. As with all other arteries, the aorta is made up of three layers, the intimathe mediaand the adventitia.

This is known as cystic medial necrosis and is most commonly associated with Marfan syndrome and is also associated with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Diiseccion of these tests has pros and cons, and they do not have equal sensitivities and specificities in the diagnosis of aortic dissection. The Stanford classification is useful as it follows clinical practice, as type Aortixa ascending aortic dissections generally require primary surgical treatment, whereas type B dissections generally are treated medically as initial treatment with surgery reserved for any complications.

SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and qualitative measure of the journal’s impact. Because of the varying symptoms of aortic dissection, the diagnosis is sometimes difficult to make.

Studies from Sweden suggest that the incidence of aortic dissection may be rising. CT with contrast demonstrating aneurysmal dilation and a dissection of the ascending aorta type A Stanford. However, type B dissections aogtica not improved, from a mortality point of view, by the operation, unless leaking, rupture, or compromise to other organs, e.

Retroperitoneal and pericardial ruptures are both possible. Retrieved from ” https: Also, the area of dissection is removed and replaced with a Dacron graft to prevent further dissection from occurring.

The proximity of the aorta to the esophagus allows the use of higher-frequency ultrasound for better anatomical images. Iatrogenic causes include trauma during disecdion catheterization or due to an intra-aortic balloon pump. Chest radiography may demonstrate a change in the morphology of the thoracic aorta which can be seen in aortic dissection. If the aortic dissection involves the abdominal aorta, compromise of qortica branches of the abdominal aorta is possible.

The intima is in direct contact with the blood inside the vessel, and mainly consists of a layer of endothelial cells on aogtica basement membrane ; the media contains connective and muscle tissue, and the vessel is protected on the outside by the adventitia, comprising connective tissue. Aortic dissection may be a late sequela of heart surgery. Arteriovenous fistula Arteriovenous malformation Telangiectasia Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.

Dissection of both the thoracic and abdominal aorta [22]. Anterior chest pain is associated with dissections involving the ascending aorta, while interscapular back pain is associated with descending aortic dissections.


The location of pain is associated with the location aorticx the dissection.

Inflammation Arteritis Aortitis Buerger’s disease. Disexcion Aortic Aneurysms and Aortic Dissections. It is usually associated with pericardial tamponade, severe aortic insufficiency, or rupture of the aorta. Vascular surgerycardiothoracic surgery.

Views Read Edit View history. Through these secondary tears, the blood can re-enter the true lumen.

Aortic dissection

Another mechanism is that the dissection may extend into the aortic root and detach the aortic valve leaflets. It can also be the result of chest trauma.

The cause of the infarction is involvement of aorticq coronary arterieswhich supply the heart with oxygenated blood, in the dissection. Archived from the original on 9 May Aortic dissection AD occurs when an injury to the innermost layer of the aorta allows blood to flow between the layers of the aortic wall, forcing the layers apart. People aortia an aortic dissection often have a history of high blood pressure ; the blood pressure is quite variable at presentation with acute aortic dissection, and tends to be higher in individuals with a distal dissection.

If the pain is pleuritic in nature, it may suggest acute pericarditis caused by bleeding into the pericardial sac. Pericardial tamponade is the most common cause of death from aortic dissection.

Vasculitis inflammation of an artery is rarely associated with aortic dissection.

Often, the diagnosis is made by visualization of the intimal flap on a diagnostic imaging test. Vasodilators such as sodium nitroprusside can be considered for people with ongoing high blood pressure, but they should never be used alone, as they often stimulate a reflexive increase in the heart rate.

Due to the high pressures in the aorta, blood enters the media at the point of the tear.
