Although patients with Stanford type A acute aortic dissection often show ST-T abnormalities at presentation, the frequency and implication of such findings remain unclear. To clarify these points, admission electrocardiograms from 233 patients admitted ≤6 hours after symptom onset who underwent emergency surgery for type A acute aortic dissection were studied. The prevalence of electrocardiographic (ECG) patterns was 51% for ST-T abnormalities (4% for ST-segment elevation and 47% for ST… CONTINUE READING
