OBJECTIVES This study sought to identify possible anatomic predictors of acute type B aortic dissection (AAD) in hypertensive patients using multidetector computed tomography angiography (CTA). BACKGROUND Although hypertension remains one of the most significant risk factors for AAD development, it is unlikely to be the only risk factor for AAD. Few studies have assessed anatomical predictors of AAD development. METHODS CTA of normotensive patients without AAD (group 1, n = 35… CONTINUE READING
