Nationwide comparative impact of thoracic endovascular aortic repair of acute uncomplicated type B aortic dissections.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) on mortality, morbidity, length of stay (LOS), and discharge status on patients with acute uncomplicated Type B aortic dissections (TBAD). It found that TEVAR for acute uncomplicated TBAD was associated with similar in-hospital mortality and renal failure as compared to medical management.
