Aortic Dissection: The Patient Guide

Our main free information resource for patients is “Aortic Dissection: the Patient Guide”.

This provides all of the information that you, your family and carers need to know after experiencing an aortic dissection.

You can get a copy of Aortic Dissection: The Patient Guide as follows:

  • If you are a recent AD patient, you should be given one by your aortic centre before you leave hospital.
  • You can also download the PDF version here by clicking the button below.
  • If you are not a recent AD patient and you would like a paper copy, we are planning to make the Guide available for sale online – watch this space for details.

Aortic centres can also bulk order their patient copies using this form.
