Diagnosis of aortic dissection presenting as ST-elevation myocardial infarction using point-of-care ultrasound

from The Journal of Emergency Medicine

Aortic dissections can present with a broad spectrum of signs and symptoms, making them difficult to diagnose in the emergency department (ED). Aortic dissections can cause occlusion of the coronary arteries, mimicking an acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Emergency point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) may be a useful diagnostic tool to help differentiate aortic dissection from a primary myocardial infarction. more
