T helper 17 (Th17) cells are related to the progression of aortic dissection. This study aimed to determine whether circulating Th17 levels are associated with the prognosis of acute Stanford type B aortic dissection (STBAD) after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR).A cohort study was performed and STBAD patients (n = 140) received TEVAR were enrolled, the circulating Th17 levels were measured and the patients were divided into low and high Th17 groups, and 36 months of follow-up was performed. The data for mortality, survival outcomes, heart structure and function changes, aortic regurgitation prevalence, and aortic remodeling outcomes were recorded.Lower mortality and fewer complications were observed in the low Th17 group than in the high Th17 group in the third year of follow-up. In addition, the low Th17 group exhibited better cardiac remodeling and cardiac function when compared with that in the high Th17 group in the second to third year after TEVAR. Aortic reflux was improved in both groups but was more pronounced in the low Th17 group. During follow-up, the true lumen of the proximal thoracic aorta at the level of the celiac trunk in both the low and high Th17 groups continuously enlarged and was more pronounced in the low Th17 group.Circulating Th17 cells were related to cardiac and aortic remodeling and prognosis during STBAD after TEVAR. Anti-inflammatory therapy may be useful for STBAD patients who have undergone TEVAR.
