In this manuscript, we review the etiology, classification, clinical manifestation, behavior, management and outcomes of aortic dissection. We emphasize the importance of genetics in the development of aortic dissection, discuss the role of size in clinical decision-making, and review the mechanism of aortic dissection development as well as the maturation of the dissected aorta.


KEY WORDS: Thoracic aortic aneurysm - Clinical decision-making - Early diagnosis
