OBJECTIVE: To investigate the results of emergency endovascular repair of complicated Stanford type B aortic dissections within 24 hours of symptom onset.
METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the clinical data of 30 patients with complicated Stanford type B aortic dissections who underwent emergency endovascular repair between June 2007 and October 2008. Endovascular repairs were performed within 24 hours of symptom onset. Stent-grafts were deployed at the first entry tear through the femoral artery under fluoroscopic guidance. Follow-up computed tomography scans were performed at 1, 3, 6, 12, and 18 months after treatment.
RESULTS: The mean patient age was 64 years (range, 43-83 years). There were 3 cases associated with rupture, 6 cases associated with refractory hypertension, 15 cases associated with persistent pain, 2 cases associated with retrograde dissection, and 4 cases associated with malperfusion. The technical success rate was 100%, and the incidence of immediate postoperative endoleaks was 13.4%. One patient died of dissection rupture within 30 days. The mean follow-up period was 12 ± 8 months. A small, persistent endoleak (<10%) occurred in 1 patient, and 1 patient died of acute liver failure 2 months after the operation. No stent dislocation, false lumen expansion, or paraplegia occurred. The false lumen was completely thrombosed in 6 patients and partially thrombosed in 19 patients. The mortality rate was 6.67%.
CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that emergency endovascular repair of complicated Stanford type B aortic dissections within 24 hours of symptom onset is associated with good outcomes and can decrease mortality.
