Type A dissection: The endovascular solution

We report a case of a type A dissection after TAVI procedure in 82-year-old fragile high-risk patient.

This work could be of interest because we decided to perform a bailout TEVAR procedure to treat a type A dissection with a primary entry tear in middle segment of the ascending aorta because the severe comobordities of the patient do not allow to proceed to the standard surgical repair.

The current endovascular stent graft technology could offer an alternative and emerging treatment option in selected high-risk patients with acute type A dissection who are unfit for surgical repair
