Abstract

The treatment of a thoracic aortic dissection is guided by prognostic and anatomical information. Stanford type A aortic dissection requires surgery, but the appropriate treatment of a Stanford type B aortic dissection has not been determined, especially in patients with visceral artery compromise associated with the aortic dissection due to the failure of surgery to improve the prognosis.We report a case of a 35-year-old man, with a Stanford type B aortic dissection, where the superior mesenteric artery was obstructed. This condition was successfully treated with stents inserted at the origin of the artery.
