Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Recent advances in the management of acute Stanford type A dissection have highlighted the clinical importance of clinical presentation and extent of dissection. The Penn classification of type A clinical presentations is based on ischemic profiles that not only determine mortality but also influence management options. The extent of type A dissection as summarized by the DeBakey classification significantly determines the role of endovascular intervention in this important disease. We propose an integration of these three classifications of acute type A dissection as a framework for future advances in diagnosis, intervention and prognosis.
