Abstract

Objectives: Endovascular stenting of the ascending aorta has been performed for various aortic pathologies, especially in patients with Type A Acute Aortic Dissection (TAAAD) for whom open surgery is prohibitively risky. Methods: This case is of an 88-year-old man with multiple comorbidities with TAAAD. Results: A percutaneous thoracic endovascular aortic repair was successfully performed with three stents to cover zones 0B and 0C. Conclusion: The Medtronic Valiant Navion stent graft system is useful for treating cases of TAAAD because it has the advantages of a reduced profile delivery system, and its offering of two types of proximal configurations.
