Multilayer stents are already being used for the treatment of peripheral aneurysms. In France, they are currently under evaluation in the treatment of thoraco-abdominal aneurysms. We have used multilayer stents to treat aneurysmal evolution of thoraco-abdominal residual type B dissection. Third month computed tomography (CT)-scan showed a false channel no longer patent. Multilayer stents are promising but it is too soon to draw conclusions on the use of this device in the treatment of patent false channels. Keywords: Aortic dissection; Computed tomography; Computerized axial tomography scan; Endovascular proceduresystents, except PCI.
