Abstract

We describe a patient with aortic dissection extending into the right coronary artery who was successfully resuscitated and operated upon after a cardiac arrest during transfer to the operating room. The use of transoesophageal echocardiography was particularly helpful for rapid diagnosis of aortic type A dissection and urgent surgical treatment.
