Abstract

LEAL, João Carlos; FERREIRA, Victor Rodrigues Ribeiro; AVANCI, Luis Ernesto  and  BRAILE, Domingo Marcolino. Surgical treatment of chronic type A aortic dissection in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc [online]. 2010, vol.25, n.3, pp. 403-405. ISSN 0102-7638.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-76382010000300018.

Surgical treatment of aortic dissection is a challenge for the cardiac surgeon, especially in patients undergoing cardiac operations. Our objective in this case report is to demonstrate how we treat the chronic type A aortic dissection in patients revascularized using percutaneous arterial and venous cannulae.
