Peak C-reactive protein level predicts long-term outcomes in type B acute aortic dissection.

Abstract

Acute aortic dissection (AAD) is associated with an inflammatory reaction, as evidenced by elevated inflammatory markers, including C-reactive protein (CRP). The association between the peak CRP level and long-term outcomes in type B AAD has not been systematically investigated.
