Abstract

Management of uncomplicated type B aortic dissection is traditionally medical with aggressive blood pressure management. However, a significant cohort of these medically managed patients develop the need for late intervention, contributing to long-term morbidity and mortality. While medical therapy remains best for most, evidence continues to mount supporting early intervention in subgroups of patients with certain anatomic characteristics and comorbidities.
