A brief focused commentary on a recent medium size Japanese series of succesful surgery for Acute Aortic Syndrome. The limitations of the series presented in well- written Uchida manuscript( and already to the last AATS Meeting) are being explored, and the commentators' allusion to the need for randomised trial is evident. The FET techniques should probably be considered for the extended arch reconstruction arm of such a trial.
