Abstract  Risk factors for aortic dissection include: hypertension, connective tissue disorders, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, and severe physical and emotional stress. Although dissection associated with extreme physical activity has been reported, to date, there have been no reports in the literature to our knowledge of acute dissection and recurrence both occurring during sexual activity. We report a case of a 34-year-old male who underwent emergency replacement of his aortic root and hemiarch for an aortic dissection precipitated by sexual intercourse.(J Card Surg 2012;27:374-375).
