Aortic Dissection

Description

Aortic dissection occurs when a tear in the inner wall of the aorta causes blood to flow between the layers of the wall of the aorta, forcing the layers apart. The dissection typically extends anterograde, but can extend retrograde from the site of the intimal tear. Aortic dissection is a medical emergency. If the dissection tears the aorta completely open (through all three layers), massive and rapid blood loss occurs. All acute ascending aortic dissections require emergency surgery to prevent rupture. Source: Wikipedia
