    Background: Acute Type A Aortic Dissection (TAAD) is a life-threatening disease. Apart from the well- known atherosclerotic risk factor, circadian, seasonal and climate-related patterns are also factors with a significantly higher risk in winter, on the first day of the working week, and in the morning hours (between 6 a.m. and 12 p.m.). Acute TAAD can also be triggered by higher mean arterial blood pressure with corresponding blood pressure peaks, and changes in atmospheric pressure. The aim of this study is to analyze climatic parameters in the catchment area of Kiel in northern Germany which can influence the occurrence of acute TAAD. Methods: All acute TAAD repairs from January 1st, 2012 to November 24th, 2017 in the University of Hospital Schleswig-Holstein Campus (UKSH) were evaluated. Traumatic .. Read More»
