To determine the incidence and characteristics of acute type A aortic syndrome (AAAS) and to verify the relevance in morbidity and in-hospital mortality.
More than 80% of the patients with AAAS suffered hypoperfusion and more than 40% malperfusion syndrome in our series. They had a significant higher risk of death and neurological complication during hospitalization.
