En la clasificación de Dubost, la disección abdominal representa del 1 al 2% de todas las disecciones aórticas, cuadro clínico aún más infrecuente si excluimos. El presente documento pretende ser una guía para la orientación diagnóstica y el tratamiento médico inicial de la disección aórtica aguda, proximal o distal. RESUMEN. Introducción: La disección aórtica es una enfermedad de pronóstico muy reservado, con una elevada mortalidad, aun cuando se diagnostique.

If the individual has refractory hypertension persistent hypertension on the maximum doses of three different classes of antihypertensive agentsan involvement of the renal arteries in the aortic dissection plane should be considered. Separating the false lumen from the true lumen is a layer of intimal tissue known as the intimal flap.

Dissection of both the thoracic and abdominal aorta [22]. Tex Heart Inst J. An echocardiogram displaying the true lumen and false lumen of an aortic dissection: The risk of death due to aortic dissection is highest in the first few hours after the dissection begins, and decreases afterward.

These are more common with a history of Marfan syndrome or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Emergency Medicine Clinics of North America. If the individual has managed to survive this window period, his prognosis is improved. Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs?

People with an aortic dissection often have a history of high blood pressure ; the blood pressure is quite variable at presentation with acute aortic dissection, and tends to be higher in individuals with a distal dissection.

As with all other arteries, the aorta is made up of three layers, the intimathe mediaand the adventitia. The intima is in direct contact with the blood inside the vessel, and mainly consists of a layer of endothelial cells on a basement membrane ; the media contains connective and muscle tissue, and the vessel is protected on the outside by the adventitia, comprising connective tissue.

Due to the high pressures in the aorta, blood enters the media at the point of the tear.

Individuals with Marfan syndrome tend to have aneurysms of the aorta and are more prone to proximal dissections of the aorta. Prevention is by blood pressure control and not smoking. The proximity of the aorta to the esophagus allows the use of higher-frequency ultrasound for better anatomical images.

The Stanford classification is divided into two groups, A and B, depending on whether the ascending aorta is involved. Through these secondary tears, the blood aprtica re-enter the true lumen. Individuals who have undergone aortic valve replacement for aortic insufficiency qortica at particularly high risk because aortic insufficiency causes increased blood flow in the ascending aorta.

This can cause dilatation and weakening of the walls of the ascending aorta. For uncomplicated Stanford type B distal aortic dissections including abdominal aortic dissectionsmedical management is preferred over surgical.

Ritter rules are a compilation of reminders, symptoms, and risk factors designed to prevent the misdiagnosis of thoracic aortic dissection.

Retroperitoneal and pericardial ruptures are both possible. Chest trauma leading to aortic dissection can be divided into two groups based on cause: Type A aortic dissection [21]. Disadvantages of TEE include the inability to visualize the distal ascending aorta the beginning of the aortic archand the descending diseccion aorta that lies below the stomach.

The right coronary artery is involved more commonly than the left coronary artery. A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis”. Concern should be increased in those with low blood pressure, neurological problems, and an unequal pulses. It is especially good in the evaluation of AI in the setting of ascending aortic dissection, and to determine whether the ostia origins of the coronary arteries are involved.

If the aortic dissection involves the abdominal aorta, compromise of the branches of the abdominal aorta is possible. July – August Pages Often, the diagnosis is made by visualization of the intimal flap on a diagnostic imaging test. Subscriber If you already have your login data, please click here.

Aortic dissection is more common in those with a history of high blood pressurea number of connective tissue diseases that affect blood vessel wall strength such as Marfan syndrome and Ehlers Danlos syndromea bicuspid aortic valveand previous heart surgery. The objective in the surgical management of aortic dissection is to resect remove the most severely damaged segments of the aorta and to obliterate the entry of blood into the false lumen both at the initial intimal tear and any secondary tears along the vessel.

Each aorticw these tests has pros and cons, dieccion they do not have equal sensitivities and specificities in the diagnosis of aortic dissection.
