Abstract

Although there have been previous cases of ascending (type I) aortic dissection recognized in young weight lifters, this is the first reported instance of a descending (type III) dissection in such an individual. Successful treatment included aortic fenestration and an aortobiiliac bypass. A new entity of aortic dissection in young weight lifters may be emerging.
