Stanford type A aortic dissection requires urgent intervention and immediate surgical approach in the emergency department. Survival rate is low, even in patients who undergo immediate surgery. Presently described is a case of unoperated Stanford type A aortic dissection that has been in follow-up under beta-blocker treatment for 7 years. To the best of our knowledge, our case is the longest surviving patient with unoperated type A aortic dissection reported in the literature.
