Abstract

Diagnosis of aortic dissection complicating cerebral ischemic stroke is difficult. A 60-year-old patient presented at an emergency department of a hospital with a sudden development of left-sided weakness, but without chest pain. During administration of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator with diagnosis of cerebral infarction, he developed symptomatic hypotension and was transferred to our hospital. His chest computed tomography revealed Stanford type A aortic dissection. Replacement of the ascending aorta and aortic arch was successfully performed on the 4th day.
