      Iatrogenic coronary artery dissections extending into and involving the aortic root.

      We set out to determine the incidence of iatrogenic coronary artery dissection extending into the aorta and to characterize the aortic lesions. We reviewed the data from 43,143 cardiac catheterizations from September 1993 through September 1999 and found 9 coronary artery-aortic dissections for an overall incidence of 0.02%. Four of these patients were undergoing treatment for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and aortic dissection was more common than for non-AMI patients (0.19% vs. 0.01%, P 40 mm from the coronary os required surgical intervention.

        Incidence, Management, and Immediate- and Long-Term Outcomes After Iatrogenic Aortic Dissection During Diagnostic or Interventional Coronary Procedures.

        Aortic dissection type A is a disease with high mortality. Iatrogenic aortic dissection after interventional procedures is infrequent, and prognostic data are scarce. Our objective was to analyze its incidence, patient profile, and long-term prognosis.

          Catheter-induced aortic dissection after invasive coronary angiography: evaluation with MDCT.

          The purpose of this study was to describe the MDCT findings of retrograde aortic extension of catheter-induced coronary artery dissection and the use of MDCT in follow-up of this complication.
