Kyobu Geka 2021 Feb;74(2):142-145

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Shin-Kuki General Hospital, Kuki, Japan.

We report a case of a 65-year-old man, who was transported as an emergency case to our institution because of Stanford type B dissection. He received conservative therapy, but follow-up computed tomography(CT) revealed dilatation of descending aorta and low-enhanced range from abdominal aorta to right common iliac artery due to the expansion of the false lumen on day 11 of hospitalization. So, we attempted to perform debranch thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), but we could not delivery the stentgraft through occluded right iliac artery. Read More
