Abstract

Aortic dissection is primarily localized in the thoracic aorta. Dissection of the abdominal aorta is exceedingly rare, especially in the absence of a blunt abdominal trauma. Two cases of a primarily infrarenal aortic dissection were diagnosed by US, CT and angiography. The patients were treated by stent graft placement. The stent grafts were introduced via a femoral arteriotomy through the introducer sheath and were placed so that they occluded entry and reentry of aortic dissection. The stent graft placement caused total obliteration of a false channel of the dissection immediately after endoprosthesis deployment. The patients were followed-up by CT and angiography at 16 and 3 months after surgery without complication.
