Resumen

FAVA P, Mario et al. Endoluminal stent-graft placement for acute dissection of the descending aorta complicated with rupture: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2006, vol.134, n.8, pp.1024-1029. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872006000800012.

Acute dissection of the aorta, although not common, has early and highly lethal complications. The type A dissection is treated with surgery. Patients with type B dissections are treated with surgery if they have complications like rupture, growth or visceral ischemia. Surgery, however, has complications such as spinal cord ischemia. Endovascular grafts have less mortality and complications. We report a 59 years old male patient with a type B dissection complicated with rupture. He was treated successfully with the placement of an endoluminal graft. He was discharged five days after the procedure in good conditions. After one year of follow up, the patient remains asymptomatic (Rev Méd Chile 2006; 134: 1024-9).
