Modified TEE aortic arch short axis view. Panel (a) Plain 2D image showing a dissection starting in the proximal aortic arch, which continued distally into the descending aorta. The intimal tear did not progress into the innominate artery. Panel (b) Similar image with color-Doppler showing flow through the true aortic lumen, and a normal perfusion of the innominate artery. 1 = Trachea with inflated endotracheal balloon; 2 = Innominate artery; 3 = True lumen; 4 = False lumen; red lines delineate the intimal tear
