We summarise advances in the epidemiology, presentation, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of acute aortic dissection. Improved understanding of this problem has been assisted not only by establishment of an international registry but also by progress in molecular biology and genetics of connective-tissue diseases. Advances in endovascular products and techniques have provided new treatment options. Open surgical repair remains the main treatment for dissection in the ascending aorta, whereas endovascular treatment is increasingly being used in dissection that is limited to other parts of the aorta.
