 Heart interior development video  [Interactive video text]

 

This is a phenomenon in which the aorta dissects its wall separating the walls mostly through intimal tear of aorta and blood then accumulates in the wall of the  ascending aorta close to the aortic valve. If there is no intimal involvement it may arise from a vasa vasorum which is intramural.

It occurs in two main groups

Rupture may enter into a body cavity. It may then extend to major branches of aorta.

Clinical presentation includes a sudden onset of excruciating pain from the anterior chest radiating to the back.
