AIMS As large population-based studies of aortic dissection are lacking, the incidence numbers and knowledge about time-trends and sex differences are uncertain. The objective was to describe incidence, temporal trends and outcome of aortic dissection with particular emphasis on sex differences. METHODS AND RESULTS During the study period 2002-2016, 8057 patients in Sweden were diagnosed with aortic dissection, identified from the National Patient Register and the Cause of Death Register. A tota...

Acute aortic dissection is a potentially lethal condition. Epidemiological data on aortic dissection were mostly based on registries or single-center reports. Population-based studies are limited, but crucial to understand the disease, to define preventive strategies and to characterize the

Objectives The aim was to analyse early and late outcomes in patients undergoing thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for acute or subacute non-traumatic type B aortic dissection (TBAD), with the particular aims of identifying prognostic morphological predictors, and to assess the magnitude of the impact of the timing of TEVAR. Methods This was a retrospective, two centre, population based consecutive case series. The study group consisted of all the 53 patients undergoing TEVAR for compl...
