Spontaneous abdominal aortic dissection (AAD) with retrograde thoracic extension is an extremely rare occurrence with a high mortality. Abdominal aortic dissection can be associated with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and the presence of an AAD with an AAA mandates surgical intervention because of a high rate of rupture. We present the case of a 53-year-old woman with a spontaneous AAD that extended retrograde into the thoracic aorta with a concomitant supraceliac intimal tear and an infrarenal AAA repaired electively with a hybrid approach using a supraceliac stent graft and an open infrarenal aortobiiliac graft. This hybrid approach provided an excellent outcome of this rare and complex vascular pathology.
