Thoracic endografting is widely used in the treatment of complicated acute type B aortic dissections to redirect the entire aortic flow towards the true lumen by covering the proximal entry tear. This procedure is challenging because endovascular navigation, maintaining position in the true lumen, can be difficult as there are frequently numerous re-entry tears. There is obvious potential for complications such as mal-positioning of the distal part of the endograft within the false lumen. This error can promote true lumen collapse, and/or aortic rupture. This report details the endovascular correction of such a complication.
