Dissecting Aneurysm of the Aorta: Its Clinical, Electrocardiographic and Laboratory Features
A Report of Fifty-eight Autopsied Cases
The literature has been reviewed, and 58 autopsied cases of dissecting aneurysm of the aorta observed at the Los Angeles County Hospital over a ten year period have been carefully studied. Clinical-pathologic correlation has been attempted whenever possible, with emphasis on diagnostic features. The increasing incidence of accurate diagnosis of dissecting aneurysm has been noted, and it is hoped that this review will help solidify the clinical syndrome or syndromes of the condition and thus facilitate diagnosis in dubious instances.
