Near-fatal acute dissection of the thoracic aorta involving the right coronary artery

Published in European journal of anaesthesiology. 2000, vol. 17, no. 11, p. 709-11
Abstract We describe a patient with aortic dissection extending into the right coronary artery who was successfully resuscitated and operated upon after a cardiac arrest during transfer to the operating room. The use of transoesophageal echocardiography was particularly helpful for rapid diagnosis of aortic type A dissection and urgent surgical treatment.
