A 36-year-old male suffered acute type A aortic dissection complicated with Ejection Fraction (EF) of less than 10% without coronary dissection and valvular disease. We decided to manage the heart failure first and when EF improved to 25% one week later, we performed ascending aorta replacement as this was subacute aortic dissection. Although central venous arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support was needed for one day and the patient had embolic stroke on postoperative day 9, the patient was discharged to the rehabilitation center on postoperative day 22. The symptom of stroke was almost resolved at 6-month follow-up.
