Abstract

After operative treatment of type A aortic dissections, repeated follow-up studies are necessary. It is clear that these examinations have to be minimally invasive; therefore selective angiography is not suitable. On the other hand, the so-called noninvasive methods must be reliable enough to establish the extent of the disease, and to discover potentially fatal complications such as aneurysms and the involvement of the aortic side-branches, especially the great supraaortic and abdominal vessels. Moreover, prognostically positive signs such as clotted parts of the false channel must be detected. These were the four central points which were of concern in our study.
