Endovascular Therapy of Acute type B Aortic Dissection Complicated with Visceral Malperfusion

Organ ischemia owing to aortic dissection often requires emergency surgery for rapid restoration of blood flow into true lumen. We here present a case of 54 years old woman who was admitted to our hospital and underwent TEVAR. The pre-procedural course was complicated by visceral ischemia, which led to renal dysfunction, metabolic acidosis, and paralyzed intestinal obstruction. The case reported suggests that TEVAR is a viable treatment in the management of Standford type B Debakey III aortic dissection complicated with organ malperfusion.
