Key Points 2 ➤ This Pocket Guide summarizes a new classification system for practical use and reporting of type B aortic dissection including the aortic arch. ➤ In addition, the Society for Vascular Surgery and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (SVS/STS) has provided improved standards for reporting type B aortic dissection (TBAD), with particular attention to those attributes of TBAD that would appear to have an impact on outcomes. Introduction ➤ Management of aortic dissection has evolved over time and now includes medical, surgical, and endovascular therapies performed by several specialties, including vascular surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, interventional radiology, and cardiology. There has been an explosion of literature in multiple specialty journals regarding presentation, treatment, and outcomes. Consequently, SVS/STS has responded to the need for a common, updated, inclusive and systematized structure for the reporting of TBAD and, by extension, management of aortic dissection in general. Particular attention has been paid to those attributes of management that would appear to have an impact on outcomes and therefore augment improvements through a common, comprehensive database.
