Accurate measurement of the blood disecckon is important. DeBakey developed aortic dissection himself at age 97 in[3] and underwent surgery in Anterograde dissections may propagate all the way to the iliac bifurcation of the aorta, rupture the aortic wall, or recanalize into the intravascular lumen leading to a double-barrel aorta.

The procedure is known as aortography.

An echocardiogram displaying the true lumen and false lumen of an aortic dissection: It is a relatively noninvasive test, requiring the individual to swallow the echocardiography probe. Aortic dissection is relatively rare, occurring at an estimated rate of three perpeople per year. Disadvantages of TEE include the inability to visualize the distal ascending aorta the beginning of the aortic archand the descending abdominal aorta that lies below the stomach.


It is especially good in the evaluation of AI in the setting of ascending aortic dissection, and to determine whether the ostia origins of the coronary arteries are involved. It is usually associated with pericardial tamponade, severe aortic insufficiency, or rupture of the aorta.

While taking a good history from the individual may be strongly suggestive of an aortic dissection, the diagnosis cannot always be made by history and physical signs alone.

While many institutions give sedation during transesophageal echocardiography for added patient comfort, it can be performed in cooperative individuals without the use of sedation.

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. Through these secondary tears, the blood can re-enter the true lumen.
