Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Acute aortic dissection is an uncommon but potentially catastrophic pathology with high mortality and morbidity. Significant advances in the understanding, diagnosis and management of aortic dissection have been made since the first case was reported 3 centuries ago. This article aims to review our current understanding of the natural history and classification of acute aortic dissection.
