Case Report

Abstract

We report the successful treatment of a patient with Stanford type B aortic dissection, “thrombosed” type with ulcer-like projections, by insertion of a stent-graft. The false lumen completely disappeared within 1 year after surgery. This maturing procedure is promising in the treatment of thrombosed, aggravated aortic dissection.
