Abstract: Uncomplicated type B dissections have historically been treated medically with hemodynamic control. Early progression of the disease and late aneurysmal dilation have been considered as indications for intervention. The aim of this study is to analyze growth rate patterns of type B dissections based on computed tomography (CT) measurements over time.
