Separation of aortic dissection in the elderly

Aortic dissection is an intramural hematoma formed by the destruction of aortic intima or middle layer and the infiltration of circulating blood into the middle layer of aortic wall, also known as aortic dissection hematoma. The dissection hematoma of the aortic wall can expand along the artery, invade the branches of the aorta, and destroy the adventitia of the arterial wall, causing massive bleeding. Sometimes it breaks into the distal intima and connects with the aortic cavity, and the condition can be temporarily relieved. The disease has rapid onset, complex symptoms, rapid changes and is easy to be misdiagnosed. If it is not treated in time, the mortality is very high.
