Aortic dissections remain complicated management issues both in the acute setting and in the chronic setting. Acute problems revolve around malperfusion syndromes or rupture, whereas chronic issues progress from the development of aneurysms in the residual dissected aorta. Endovascular approaches to dealing with these difficult situations are being used more frequently to treat acute issues in type B dissections and prevent secondary complications in type A dissections that may require significant intervention in the future. This article discusses the endovascular approaches employed in the care of acute dissections with particular attention toward the anesthetic considerations involved in these challenging cases.
