Abstract

Background: The classification of aortic dissection into acute (30 days). Overall survival was progressively lower through the 4 time periods. Conclusions: This IRAD classification system can provide clinicians with a more robust method of characterizing survival after aortic dissection over time than previous methods. This system will be useful for treating patients, counseling patients and families, and studying new diagnostic and treatment methods.
