Patent false lumen after endovascular stent graft treatment of type B aortic dissection is a predictor for late death and retreatment. Between June 2008 and March 2010, five men with patent false lumen, due to a type B dissection previously treated with thoracic stent graft, underwent endovascular coiling treatment. Within a 30-day period, there were no deaths or major complications. The follow-up duration ranged from 1 to 22 months (mean 10.6 ± 8.5). Endovascular coiling of patent false lumen after endovascular stent graft treatment for type B aortic dissection avoided the risk of rupture or death due to secondary aneurysm formation.
