Novel approach to the treatment of distal malperfusion secondary to ascending aortic dissection.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Acute Type A dissection is a surgical emergency. The presence of visceral and extremity malperfusion syndromes increases perioperative mortality twofold. On occasion, significant malperfusion may best be addressed in a staged fashion with preliminary attention to specific vascular beds with delayed repair of the dissection itself. We present a subacute Type A dissection associated with malperfusion of multiple vascular beds (mesenteric, renal, and iliofemoral) managed with a complication-specific approach utilizing endovascular thoracoabdominal aortic repair prior to ascending repair.
