Articles Featuring Dr. Frank Arko
The three main aortic dissection complications during treatments include stroke, spinal cord ischemia, and spinal cord paralysis. This is important to note as these complications can extend hospital stays and contributes to higher mortality amongst patients.
Aortic dissection types can be classified depending on the location of the intimal tear, extent of involvement of the aorta, and duration of time from initial clinical presentation. Aortic dissection classifications can dictate medical management and surgical versus endovascular treatment.
