Abstract

Type B aortic dissection (TBAD) can be complicated due to visceral and limb malperfusion. We present the case of a patient with a TBAD 5 months after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for an infrarenal aortic aneurysm, which resulted in a right leg acute limb ischemia due to impingement of the EVAR from to the dissection. In the following discussion, we will review the literature and describe our technique for the treatment of this infrequent problem.
