Abstract

Aortic dissection is often reported in association with carotid or other vessel dissection. We report a case of 75-year old patient who underwent surgical treatment for aortic dissection in 2001. A routine carotid doppler shows bilateral carotid dissection even though the repaired aortic arch is normal.
