Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) Crawford type I with high-risk factors. A 74-year-old woman, who had a history of myocardial infarction with severe left ventricular dysfunction, asthma, and hypothyroidism, underwent endovascular stent-graft replacement for TAAA and simultaneous surgical reconstruction of the visceral arteries to avoid thoracotomy and extracorporeal circulation. Postoperatively she suffered from weakness of the left leg, with suspected paraparesis, but recovered muscular strength to some extent and was discharged in a wheelchair on postoperative day 74.
