Severe hypotension at presentation is a grave prognostic indicator. Tex Heart Inst J. It is usually associated with pericardial tamponade, severe aortic insufficiency, or rupture of the aorta.

Due to the high-intensity magnetic fields used during MRI, it is contraindicated in individuals with metallic implants. Also, the area of dissection is removed and replaced with a Dacron graft to prevent further dissection from occurring. Rupture leads to hemorrhaging into a body cavity, and prognosis depends on the area of rupture.

Aortic dissection AD occurs when an injury to the innermost layer of the aorta allows blood to flow between the layers of the aortic wall, forcing the layers apart.
