Concomitant true and false lumen “parallel thoracic endovascular aortic repair” as an endovascular alternative to open arch/descending aortic reconstruction for chronic DeBakey type I dissection with aneurysmal degeneration

Academic Article


  • A 77-year-old woman presented with symptomatic thoracic aortic aneurysm within a dissected thoracoabdominal aorta distal to a previous Dacron ascending aortic replacement. She was not a candidate for open repair and had no proximal landing zone for conventional thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) resulting from dissection extension into the brachiocephalic vessels. A concomitant parallel graft true and false lumen TEVAR was performed from the distal aortic arch to diaphragm. Follow-up imaging demonstrated successful exclusion of the false lumen aneurysm and successful protection of the true lumen with the adjacent parallel TEVAR device.
