The treatment of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms, both surgical and endovascular, has always been challenging. In the last years, the multilayer stent has emerged as an alternative device for the treatment of this condition. In this paper, we describe a catastrophic complication of the multilayer stent in a patient with thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm, a case of massive visceral ischemia and death 3 months after stent deployment.
