A: Good


Comments: The Discussion illustrates the difficulty of the diagnosis of coronary malperfusion and states the treatment procedure for the restoration of the function, providing brief literature. The Conclusion states the importance of immediate revascularization of coronary occlusion in relation to acute aortic dissection type A (AADA) and semi-percutaneous extracorporeal right ventricular assistance (eR-VAD).

Further comments on the paper

Comments: The case presents a 55-year-old woman with chest pain which later revealed right ventricular (RV) dysfunction followed by aortic valve insufficiency. Further, this illustrates the management of a patient with an acute right ventricular infarction due to coronary avulsion. It also discusses the surgical procedure for the treatment of heart failure in acute aortic dissection.


Q: Would you recommend this manuscript for further publication?

A: Yes - Suitable to be published

If you have any questions and clarifications you can write to the journal.
