OBJECTIVE Type B aortic dissection can be acutely complicated by rapid expansion, rupture, and malperfusion syndromes. Short-term adverse outcomes are associated with failure of the false lumen to thrombose. The reasons behind false lumen patency are poorly understood, and the objective of this pilot study was to use computational fluid dynamics reconstructions of aortic dissection cases to analyze the effect of aortic and primary tear morphology on flow characteristics and clinical outcomes in… CONTINUE READING
