The working group "Aortic Surgery and Interventional Vascular Surgery" of the German Society for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (GSTCVS) set up the German registry for acute aortic dissection type A (GERAADA) in July 2006. This web-based database was developed to record data of patients who had undergone surgery for aortic dissection type A (AADA). The aim of GERAADA is to learn from analyzing the data of AADA patients how to improve the perioperative management and surgical treatment of patients with AADA and to identify possible parameters affecting patient risk and outcome. Between July 2006 and June 2009 (2010), 1558 (2137) patients with AADA were enrolled in the multi-center, prospective GERAADA database by 50 cardiac surgery centers in German-speaking countries in Europe. Data on patients' preoperative and intraoperative status, postoperative complications, midterm results and circumstances of death were recorded. Data were analyzed to identify risk factors influencing the outcome of these patients. The Institute of Medical Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Informatics (IMBEI) in Mainz performed the statistical analyses. Analyses from GERAADA reveal a thirty-day mortality of 17% in 2137 AADA patients. Only short interv...Continue Reading
