A 73-year-old woman with a history of chronic hypertension and severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, presented to a district general hospital with thoracic pain in a profound state of shock. She was diagnosed with cardiac tamponade, severe mitral regurgitation, and Stanford type A (Debakey type I) intramural hematoma. Her ascending aorta was of a significant size and therefore emergent repair was done to replace the ascending aorta and mitral valve. After 6 months, an increased aneurysmal size of 6.0 cm was observed in a follow up contrast-enhanced computed tomography angiography. The patient was successfully treated by a staged hybrid procedure involving initial supra-aortic reconstruction.
