Abstract

Acute type-B aortic dissection with malperfusion is a serious cardiovascular condition associated with high morbidity and mortality. Recent studies have investigated the efficacy of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) as treatment for acute aortic dissection. In this report, we present a case of acute type-B aortic dissection complicated with malperfusion, which was successfully treated with emergent TEVAR for entry closure by a Matsui-Kitamura stent graft (MKSG). MKSG is a flexible custom-made curved stent graft. The main advantages of MKSG for emergent TEVAR include flexibility, shape, and small profile when compressed.
