A comprehensive update on the evidence on the management of acute aortic syndromes, including IMH. Of particular interest is the robust recommendation to bypass non-dedicated aortic centers even to the expense of increased transit time in order to offer management in a Comprehensive Aortic Center (CAC). The femoral cannulation appears to come gradually out of favour. The cerebral perfusion for arch work is proposed to be either ante-or retrograde. Figure 3 is particularly germane to the technical aspects. Visceral malperfusion is again heralded as a poor-outcome situation.
