Figure 1: Transthoracic echocardiography. Parasternal long-axis view shows Type A aortic dissection, acute aortic root rupture, and cardiac tamponade. (a) Aorta aneurysm involving the aortic root with a linear echo suggestive of a intimal flap (white arrows). No pericardial effusion is seen. (b) Acute aortic root rupture with a new developed pericardial effusion around the right ventricle with several bubbles inside (black arrows). (c) Large pericardial effusion around the right and left ventricle (asterisk). (d) Cardiac tamponade: marked right ventricular collapse is present in diastole (white arrow). Ao: Aorta, LV: Left ventricle, LA: Left atrium, RA: Right atrium, RV: Right ventricle
