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.

Here, we present a case of successful aortic valve repair of traumatic aortic regurgitation (AR). A man in his early twenties had a chest blunt trauma due to a bicycle accident 6 years earlier and suffered sternum fracture. He recovered without cardiovascular complications. Three months previously, a new diastolic murmur was detected on medical checkup. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) showed severe AR, and the left ventricular end-diastolic-/end-systolic dimension was 69/51 mm. Transesophageal echocardiography showed severe AR with perforation of the non-coronary cusp and dilatation of the aortic annulus (29.6 mm). Aortic valve repair was performed with an autologous pericardial patch and external suture annuloplasty. Postoperative TTE showed normal aortic valve function with trivial AR. He was discharged on postoperative day 11. Three months later, TTE showed trivial AR along with a reduced left ventricular dimension and improved left ventricular ejection fraction.

A 71-year-old man who had undergone repair of a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm with a tube graft 3 months ago was transferred from another hospital with an Aortoenteric Fistula (AEF) for surgical treatment. Computed tomographic (CT) angiography revealed pseudoaneurysm formation at the proximal anastomotic site. Waiting for the elective operation, he developed massive hematemesis with shock. Endovascular stent-graft repair was emergently performed because of high risk for conventional open surgery. Gastrointestinal bleeding was successfully controlled. The psuedoaneurysm disappeared, which was confirmed by postoperative CT angiography. At 1-year follow-up, he has shown no clinical and radiographic evidence of recurrent infection or bleeding. For the case with shock, Endovascular repair could be a bridge to open surgery because it is fast and minimally invasive. Endovascular repair of AEF is technically feasible and may be the definitive treatment in selected patients without signs of infection and gastrointestinal bleeding.

We reported a 74-year-old female complicated by ostial obstruction of the left main trunk after aortic valve replacement for severe aortic stenosis. At surgery, the length from the orifice of the left main trunk to the aortic annulus was 3 mm. After a 19 mm Carpentier-Edwards PERIMOUNT MAGNA was implanted in supra-annular position, the orifice of left main trunk was concealed by a sewing cuff of the bioprosthesis. Before aortic declamping, saphenous vein graft was bypassed to the left anterior descending artery. The postoperative course was uneventful. Computed tomography demonstrated the ostial obstruction of the left main trunk by the bioprosthesis.

We report a rare case of cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery causing intermittent claudication. About 2 months previously, a 21-year-old man had sudden intermittent claudication in the left leg. The left-sided ankle brachial pressure index (ABI) at rest was 0.66. Computed tomography revealed that the arterial occlusion was segmentally caused by cystic lesions. A cystic adventitial lesion of the popliteal artery, measuring 9 cm in diameter, was surgically removed and reconstruction was performed with a saphenous vein graft. Postoperatively the left ABI improved to 1.01, and his symptoms disappeared. The histopathological diagnosis was cystic adventitial disease and the cysts were in the adventitia. The postoperative course was uneventful and he has been without recurrence for 14 months.
