Aortic Dissection Repair


Aortic Dissection Repair is used in the treatment of a tear in the walls of the aorta. The aim of this process is to enhance oxygen levels and nutrients for the organs in the body. General anaesthesia is given and an abdominal or chest incision is made. Blood pumping in the heart region is done by a bypass machine. Artificial grafts are applied on the weakened aortic parts and the incision is closed.
