In brief: TO THE O.R.!
Aortic dissection may be treated with medical management or emergent surgery.
With the improvement of endovascular grafts, surgical repair seems more common. A vascular surgeon will advise based on anatomy and location of dissection, vessels/organs involved. I've seen a few interventional radiologists do things also. Most important is immediate evaluation!
