Tell Us Your Story: Celebrated my 20th survival year ////// My heart doctor thinks that is a world record. That length of time is exceptional considering I suffered a “total” dissection. I am known as the “miracle man” at the hospital.

I have two aneurysms that have been at a critical stage for the last ten years but have not failed. I have gotten very familiar with living day to day. Life is great, enjoy every moment.

  1. You are certainly an inspiration! My husband had a type A aortic dissection in February 2015, he was 56 St the time. Still going strong, thank goodness. He was also left with a typeB dissection, which as you know runs along the entire aorta, so the dame as you it is good to hear you have survived this for over 20 years! To many more!
