Emergent Hybrid Procedure to treat Complicated Stanford Type III-B Acute Dissection

Thursday, 22 September, 2011 - 12:10


Complicated Stanford type B acute aortic dissection is associated with high mortality, because of the high risks of open surgery and the inherent complications of this disease. Treatment remains controversial despite recent unbridled enthusiasm in favor of stent grafting. In cases of inadequate proximal landing zones, an hybrid approach with supraaortic trunks transposition is an option to gain the place for a better stent graft placement. We report the case of a symptomatic Aortic Type B Dissection succesfully treated by an emergent hybrid procedure with supraaortic trunks revascularization from ascending aorta, thoracic stent graft deployment and a right to left femoro-femoral bypass for left limb revascularization.
