Abstract

Subacute ascending aortic dissection following open heart surgery is a rare but potentially fatal complication. It is associated with dilatation of the aortic root or cystic medial necrosis. We present associated a case of a 65-year old patient with non-fatal ascending aortic dissection after coronary artery bypass grafting using extracorporeal circulation.
