This paper presents the description of the author's experience with bifurcated endovascular stent graft in a patient affected by spontaneous infrarenal acute aortic dissection (SIAAD). The authors report a case of SIAAD occurring in the normal aorta of a patient who presented with severe lower back pain radiated to the abdomen, not responding to common pain-killers. A complete exclusion of the dissected aorta was accomplished with a bifurcated endovascular graft using a simple technique. SIAAD is a rare event. Endovascular therapy is a safe option and can be considered the treatment of choice even for dissection extending into one or both iliac.

Abstract

This paper presents the description of the author's experience with bifurcated endovascular stent graft in a patient affected by spontaneous infrarenal acute aortic dissection (SIAAD). The authors report a case of SIAAD occurring in the normal aorta of a patient who presented with severe lower back pain radiated to the abdomen, not responding to common pain-killers. A complete exclusion of the dissected aorta was accomplished with a bifurcated endovascular graft using a simple technique. SIAAD is a rare event. Endovascular therapy is a safe option and can be considered the treatment of choice even for dissection extending into one or both iliac.
