Abstract

We reported a case of complicated Type B aortic dissection treated by TEVAR and PETTICOAT technique. Angio-CT scan follow-up showed a complete false lumen thrombosis in most of the treated aorta with a residual short portion of dissected aorta at the renal level, however, the aortic diameter continued to expand. At 10 years follow-up the maximum aortic diameter was 76 mm. After open repair the patients died due to respiratory failure. This case shows how long-term PETTICOAT technique results may not protect patients from the aneurysm evolution of the aorta.
