Two patients with chronic type B aortic dissection underwent endovascular repair. The interval between the onset of aortic dissection and stent grafting was 1 year, 7 months in both patients. The entry closure was successful and postoperative course was uneventful for each patient. However, intimal injury developed at the bottom end of the stent graft 6 years after endovascular repair in 1 patient, and at 2 years in the other patient. The former patient underwent graft replacement of the descending thoracic aorta, and the latter underwent placement of additional stent grafts.
