Acute aortic dissection combined with cardiac tamponade in an elderly
patient saved by pericardial drainage: a case report
Acute aortic dissection combined with cardiac tamponade is fatal. The
radical treatment is an aortic replacement; however, the risk is high.
The treatment method for elderly patients is difficult to determine. We
suggest conservative treatment with pericardial drainage may be one of
the treatment options in the elderly with comorbidities.
