Ascending aortic dissection is rare in cardiac allograft recipients. Only two patients with dissection arising from the native aorta have been reported previously and, unfortunately, the diagnosis was made postmortem in each instance. We report the first case of successful surgical treatment of aortic dissection confined to the donor aorta in a recipient of an orthotopic cardiac allograft.
