Extensive aortic dissection, seen involving ascending aorta, aortic arch, descending and abdominal aorta and seen extending into left common iliac artery, left subclavian, proximal aspect of SMA, left renal artery and right innominate arteries
There is non enhancement of the Rt CCA, with thrombus formation and very faint peripheral flow.
No evidence of active leaking or retro peritoneal or mediastinal haematoma.
There is attenuation of the common hepatic artery, however there is flow within the distal branches
Severe decreased enhancement of the left kidney, keeping with significant ischemic changes /infarction
Distal aspect of SMA, IMA and right renal are enhancing
Multiple small bowel loops are of increased mucosal enhancement while others show severely decreased mucosal enhancement, suggesting ischemic bowel changes, no pneumatosis, no free abdominal air, no portal or SMV venous gas
Thrombosed midaspect of the splenic artery, its distal aspect showing filling from collaterals, suggesting this one was not acute and it was there for some time
Thrombosed right CIA, Rt EIA, with bifemoro arterial graft anastomosis, the Rt CFA is seen filled from the graft
Severe aortic dissection, Debakey I, Stanford A, complicated by intestinal ischemia and severe left renal ischemia/infarction and thrombosis of right common carotid artery
