Dissection of the aorta: a new approach.

PMID:  12482778     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
There are two generally proposed causes of dissection of the aorta: (1) cleavage caused by blood entering the tear; and (2) haemorrhage that dissects the media and tear secondary to the cleavage. Using analysis of pressures and forces, this article shows that, on some occasions, these mechanisms alone cannot be responsible for causing aortic dissection
