Successful Repair of Type A Aortic Dissection in an Octogenarian With Double Aortic Arch

Zeigler, S. M., Hiesinger, W.

An 80-year-old woman was transferred to our institution with a subacute type A aortic dissection and a previously undiagnosed double aortic arch. The patient underwent successful repair with aortic valve resuspension, ascending aortic replacement, and repair of the proximal right-sided arch. This is the first reported case of a type A dissection associated with a double aortic arch in the United States.
