Pulmonary artery dissection and conservative medical management.

Abstract

Pulmonary artery dissection is a rare clinical entity, which has been related to pulmonary arterial hypertension. It is frequently presented as cardiogenic shock or sudden death, so diagnosis is often made at autopsy. The management with best results is surgery. We report a case of pulmonary artery dissection associated with previous aortic valve replacement with a favourable outcome, using conservative medical therapy.
