In brief: Blood pressure

90% of type b dissection are managed medically with blood pressure control in the acute phase.
In cases of rupture, decrease perfusion to organs like intestines kidneys or legs the patient will need surgery or stenting. In chronic cases you need follow up ct scan to assess the aorta for aneurysmal degeneration.
