    LIJEČENJE AKUTNE DISEKCIJE AORTE U BOLESNIKA S METASTATSKIM KARCINOMOM PROSTATE ----- Akutna disekcija aorte eklatantni je primjer hitnoga kirurškog stanja. Smrtonosan tijek bolesti zahtijeva hitnu kiruršku intervenciju uz rijetke apsolutne kontraindikacije za hitni kirurški zahvat. Ovdje opisujemo slučaj 74 godine staroga muškarca s dijagnosticiranim metastatskim karcinomom prostate koji je podvrgnut kirurškom liječenju akutne disekcije aorte tipa Stanford A. Usprkos postojanju diseminiranog karcinoma prostate odlučili smo se za kirurški tretman akutne disekcije aorte uvažavajući tijek i prognozu njegove osnovne maligne bolesti.

    English abstract

    Acute aortic dissection bears all the stigmata of a true clinical emergency. The natural history of this acute aortic syndrome warrants prompt surgical intervention, with only a few absolute contraindications to this line of treatment. We present a 74-year-old man with documented metastatic prostate cancer who underwent emergent surgery for acute Stanford A aortic dissection. Having acknowledged the relatively favorable evolution of our patient's malignant disease, we were not deterred by its presence from pursuing surgical treatment of his aortic dissection.
