Abstract
We report a case of chronic dissecting thoracoabdominal aneurysm with intraoperative retrograde aortic dissection and rupture at proximal descending aorta, which was successfully treated by echoguided stent-graft insertion. An 82-year old male underwent thoracoabdominal aortic replacement for dilatation of infra-diaphragmatic aorta. Under F-F bypass, his thoracoabdominal aorta was replaced by a Dacron graft with 4-branches. After he weaned from F-F bypass, we found massive bleeding from proximal descending aorta. Trans-esophageal echocardiography (TEE) showed aortic dissection from the clamp site to the distal anastomotic site of the former total arch replacement. We temporary got hemostasis by suture and surgical glue, and anastomosed a 10 mm-graft to the thoracoabdominal main graft as conduit, then inserted and deployed 2 pieces of stent-graft. Direct echo and TEE contributed to the accurate positioning of them. Bleeding was completely controlled. He well recovered without paraplegia. Post-operative computed tomography (CT) showed good positioning and dilatation of the stentgraft and the perfect reverse remodeling of thoracic aorta.
