ABSTRACT

In acute Stanford type A aortic dissection, except for some thrombosed false-lumen types, graft replacement is a standard treatment. On the other hand, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) might be considered for high-risk patients with retrograde type A aortic dissection when entry is in the descending aorta, although its efficacy in a case of an extensive thrombosed false lumen without obvious entry is unknown. We report a case of successful zone 3 TEVAR using RelayPro NBS for Stanford type A aortic dissection with a localized CT-enhanced false lumen in the proximal descending aorta. An 83-year-old woman was admitted for acute Stanford type A aortic dissection with a thrombosed false lumen of the ascending thoracic aorta. She was initially treated conservatively because of being a high-risk patient for open surgery. One week after hospitalization, the ascending aorta diameter increased and the false lumen in the proximal descending aorta grew sporadically in a CT image. We suspected that the ascending aorta was enlarged due to a partially patent false lumen of the descending thoracic aorta, and performed zone 3 TEVAR using RelayPro NBS to close a possible entry in the proximal descending aorta even though there was no obvious entry. The patient had a good postoperative course and was discharged 15 days after TEVAR. Shrinkage of the false lumen in the ascending aorta was observed in CT images two months after TEVAR.

ABSTRACT

Lately, there has been a trend towards integration among cardiovascular surgery institutions. However, local institutions continue to play a crucial role in community-based medicine, given the emergent nature of cardiovascular diseases and the challenges involved in transporting patients with such conditions over long distances. We present the results of a questionnaire survey we conducted to examine the current status and issues faced by cardiovascular surgery institutions in community-based medicine.
