Aortic arch vessel debranching and endovascular repair in aortic dissection De Bakey type III
- Groudeva, D. Petkov
Thoracic endovascular aortic repair is a proven minimally invasive technique in treating aortic dissection type III. However, the procedure is not always free of complications. Hereby we present a case of a 64 years old female patient treated by both surgical and endovascular approach. The patient presented with dissection type III and underwent endovascular stent graft. Due to post interventional endoleak type I the patient underwent surgical debranching and a second stent graft was placed. Preprocedural exact evaluation of the CT scans influenced the decision making and planning a successful treatment. Also CT is indispensable in monitoring results of endovascular procedures and assessing eventual complications performed at appropriate intervals.
