Tell Us Your Story:

Ihad a type B aortic dissection and I was given a 5% chance of surviving increasing 5% each day over four days. I am currently on 9 tablets a day, undergo regular blood tests and CT scans however, I am alive.

I also suffer from PTSD which was caused by the Vietnam War and would like to know if a specialist can confirm that there is evidence to prove that there is a link between PTSD and aortic dissection
