Type B aortic dissection (TBAD) is a life-threatening condition that occurs when a tear in the descending thoracic aortic wall occurs creating a second false channel. Patients with TBAD face dramatically different options for care without strong evidence for the long-term consequences of those options at an individual level. What is absent in the decision-making process in this complex landscape is the patient’s voice. Providing opportunities for patient involvement will help ensure the patient voice is well represented in research related to TBAD.
The TBAD Collaborative is currently gathering perspectives of those affected by type B aortic dissection, and we need your help!
We want to hear from people who have been diagnosed with type B aortic dissection. Take our survey and share your experiences.with type B aortic dissection. The survey responses will help us understand what the community needs in terms of research, education, and support in dealing with type B aortic dissection.
