Again, also labetolol needs to be titrated towards its desired hemodynamic effects. The fast and short acting beta-blocker esmolol may also be useful in patients with dissection and arterial hypertension, especially if immediate surgery is anticipated since there will be no carry-over effect to the post-surgical period due to its short half life.

Transesophageal echocardiographic display of a type B dissection with separation between the true lumen (TL) and the false lumen (FL) which is partially thrombosed by layers of thrombus (Thr).
