In-hospital outcome of acute type B dissection (ABAD) is strongly related to preoperative aortic conditions. In order to clarify the influence of the clinical presentation on the outcome, we analyzed the patients of the International Registry of Acute Aortic Dissection (IRAD). All patients affected by complicated ABAD, enrolled in the IRAD from 1996-2004, were included. Complications were defined as the presence of shock, periaortic hematoma, spinal cord ischemia, preoperative mesenteric ischemia/infarction, acute renal failure, limb ischemia, recurrent pain, refractory pain or refractory hypertension (group I). All other patients were categorized as uncomplicated (group II). A comprehensive analysis was performed of all clinical variables in relation to in-hospital outcome.
