  2. 2. History<br />An elderly Thai female 80 years old<br />Chief complaint: Progressive dyspnea for 2 weeks<br />
  3. 3. History<br />Present illness<br /> - 8 months ago, the patient presented with acute dyspnea .Chest X-ray was shown left pleural effusion size 7*4 cm, trachea in midline, no widening mediastinum. She was diagnosis tapped left pleural effusion. Gross blood was shown.The doctor planned CT Chest for rule out malignancy but she loss follow up.<br />
  4. 4. History (con’t)<br />Present illness<br /> - 2 weeks ago, she was progressive dyspnea on exertion, no chest pain, +ve PND, no orthopnea<br /> no back pain, no fever, no dizziness<br />

  20. 20. Aortic disection<br />
  21. 21. Epidemiology<br />More often in men and increases with age.<br />Hypertension: most common risk factor.<br />Mortality is 1 - 5 / 100,000 population per year.<br />Rosen’s Emergency medicine: Concepts and Clinical Practice, 6th Edition<br />
  22. 22. Classification<br />The Stanford classification<br />Type A dissections involve the ascending aorta<br />Type B dissections do not<br />Distal dissections tend to be older, heavy smokers with chronic lung disease and more often with generalized atherosclerosis and hypertension.<br />acute (< 2 weeks) and chronic (> 2 weeks).<br />Rosen’s Emergency medicine: Concepts and Clinical Practice, 6th Edition<br />
  23. 23. Classification<br />
  24. 24. Management<br />Airway, Breathing, Circulation<br />Blood pressure should be measured all four limbs. <br />Patients presenting with hypotension secondary to aortic rupture or pericardial tamponade should be resuscitated with intravenous fluids and immediately transported to the operating room if they are to have a chance to survive. <br />Rosen’s Emergency medicine: Concepts and Clinical Practice, 6th Edition<br />
  25. 25. Management<br />The two goals of medical management are to <br /> (1) reduce blood pressure and <br /> (2) decrease the rate of rise of the arterial pulse (dP/dt) to diminish shearing forces<br />Opioids pain control and to decrease sympathetic tone.<br />The use of β-adrenergic blockers is the cornerstone of aortic dissection management target HR is 60-80/ min<br />Rosen’s Emergency medicine: Concepts and Clinical Practice, 6th Edition<br />
  26. 26. Management<br />Sodium nitroprusside can be used, in conjunction with a β-blocker, to maintain the systolic blood pressure at 100 to 120 mm Hg or to the lowest level to maintain vital organ perfusion. <br />Rosen’s Emergency medicine: Concepts and Clinical Practice, 6th Edition<br />
  27. 27. Surgery<br />Type A acute aortic dissections require prompt surgical treatment.<br />Definitive treatment of type B acute aortic dissections is less clear. Sx for persistent pain, uncontrolled hypertension, occlusion of a major arterial trunk, frank aortic leaking or rupture, or development of localized aneurysm. <br />Rosen’s Emergency medicine: Concepts and Clinical Practice, 6th Edition<br />
  28. 28. Prognosis<br /> A “Deadly triad”<br />1. absence of chest pain<br />2. hypotension<br />3. branch vessel involvement<br />Rosen’s Emergency medicine: Concepts and Clinical Practice, 6th Edition<br />
  29. 29. Interventional Therapy<br />Stent-graft and fenestration technique for complicated type B dissections<br />Rosen’s Emergency medicine: Concepts and Clinical Practice, 6th Edition<br />
