In the dissection and aneurysm columns data: All the “+”signs, except those in the Subclavian and Innominate columns, represent dissection. The numeric values in the parentheses represent the dilatation/aneurysm measurement (millimeter units). ** aneurysmatic dilatation (up to 15 mm) between the left subclavian and the carotid arteries
