Abstract

Aortic dissection is remarkable for a tear in the intima and formation of a spurious canal in the inner wall of the aorta. We present a case of a 31-year-old female with chronic type B aortic dissection discovered during CT and accompanied by severe arterial hypertension. Aortic dissection is optimally managed with transcutaneous stentgraft placement aimed at sealing the tear in the inner wall. This procedure was successfully undertaken and the blood pressure was normalized with multi-drug anti-hypertensive therapy.
