ACTACC Acute Type A Aortic Dissection Audit Form
Inclusion: Emergency/unplanned admission to hospital; arriving in theatre for repair of a Type A dissection/acute aortic syndrome. Includes patients who are stabilised for a period of time before operating; excludes iatrogenic dissections during other cardiac procedures.
Questions 4-14 may be best answered by the anaesthetising team; they can complete these and submit the form. The link-person can then complete the followup with a second form later. Please ensure the start of surgery and centre numbers match; these two questions require an answer before the form can be submitted. Alternatively paper forms may be preferred. Thanks in advance for your efforts!
