Movie 1. Echocardiography of the short axis of the left ventricle. The dissection can be seen over the level of the valve, above the origin of the coronary arteries. (MOV 921 kb)

Movie 2. Echocardiography of the aortic arch. Both the ascending and descending parts are shown. Widening of the ascending part and the dissection are noticeable. (MOV 1141 kb)

Movie 3. Subcostal view of the echocardiography. The thoracic aorta and part of the abdominal aorta are presented. Both true and false lumens are seen. (MOV 1005 kb)
