Priority 14 from the Heart Surgery PSP
|UNCERTAINTY: What are the best ways to prevent, diagnose and treat patients with acute aortic dissection (including long-term management)? (JLA PSP Priority 14)|
|JLA question ID||0088/14|
|Explanatory note||The European Guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of aortic diseases identify a series of gap in current knowledge mostly related to aortic aneurysm and chronic dissection that can nonetheless be extended to aortic dissection.
~ Research into aortic dissection including diagnosis, management, new procedures is needed. What can we do to improve early diagnosis of aortic dissection? How can emergency treatment Aortic Dissection be improved? At what measurements should aortic repair be considered with aortic aneurysms?
