Abstract

Malperfusion syndrome is a complication of acute descending aortic dissection (DAD) and it is associated with a poor clinical outcome. Surgical treatment for it has a high rate of mortality. Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for DAD with malperfusion syndrome has resulted in good clinical outcomes. However, when both common iliac arteries are compromised by a false lumen, it is impossible to conduct TEVAR because there is no accessible artery. We successfully treated a case of DAD with malperfusion syndrome in which both common iliac arteries were compromised by placing stents in both arteries using the left brachial approach.
