We ­reported the ­case of an ­acute ­aortic dis­sec­tion com­pli­cating ­right ­guiding cath­eter manip­u­la­tion ­during engage­ment in the ­right cor­o­nary ­ostium. ­Despite ­absence of hemo­dy­namic dete­ri­ora­tion, dis­sec­tion pro­gressed rap­i­dly ­from the ­sinus of Val­salva to the ­ascending ­aorta ­along its ­entire ­length. At sur­gery, per­formed in emer­gency, the ­aorta was not ­dilated and the ­aortic ­wall did not ­appear path­o­logic. There­fore con­ser­va­tive sur­gery was per­formed, con­sisting of ­suture of the ­aortic ­tear and incol­lage of the ­false ­lumen, ­with ­good imme­diate and mid-term ­results.
