Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 68 year old man was admitted to our hospital with dysphagia and back pain. Contrasted computed tomography showed "Shaggy aorta" forming a saccular descending aortic aneurysm with edematous esophagus. Low density area in the intramuscular layer of the esophagus suggested the possibility of connection between the esophagus and the aneurysm. The patient underwent endovascular treatment of the aneurysm. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the patient was discharged from the hospital with improvement in his symptoms. Although there are reports suggesting endovascular treatment as a contraindication for shaggy aorta due to risk of embolization, it may be considered as an option for a patient who is in need of surgical treatment.
