Early Detection of Ascending Aorta Dissection Using the Right Parasternal Echocardiographic Window
Keywords: Echocardiography, aortic dissection, right parasternal image
Right parasternal image is not a part of the routine echocardiographic examination and is seldom used. In cases of ascending aorta aneurysm and dissection, this view may help provide crucial information when the standard views are unable to visualize them adequately. Here, we reported a case of aortic dissection that was diagnosed early and easily using the right parasternal image.
