Study points to new way to predict death risk from torn aorta

...for the mechanism behind that risk. Their model focuses on a phenomenon that can easily be seen on modern medical-imaging scans: the presence of blood clots in the channel created when the layers of the aorta separate like two layers of an onion. This channel, called the false lumen, runs alongside the tr...
