I had open heart surgery at Mayo for the ascending aneurysm which was not dissected, just large, and the arch was rebuilt but no valve replacement. Actually got along quite well thanks to a wonderful doctor there, Dr Pochettino. Again, best of luck to you!

I think I am dissected. What does that mean? I will need open heart surgery whenever. Your testimonial is reassuring!

Thank you to crhp. What does dissected mean?
