Type of Dissection: Ascending
Age at time of dissection: 31

We have just tragically lost our daughter to this condition, we know nothing about it apart from what the Coroner has just told me.

Looking on the Internet I see that it is often mis-diagnosed.

Our kate has complained of chest pains in the past also problems walking which I understand could be linked. She has been we believe fobbed of with ‘Go home and rest and keep your leg elevated’ She was a smoker which obviously did not help.
