Aortic dissection after superior mesenteric artery percutaneous stenting. Case report.

Abstract

We report an unusual case of aortic dissection after superior mesenteric artery percutaneous stenting. A 44-year-old patient, who suffered from back pain and fever, was diagnosed as having an aortic dissection. Aortic dissection, extending from the aortic arch (just after left subclavian artery origin) to the aortic carrefour, was successfully diagnosed by means of Duplex scan and CT scan examination. Two pathogenetic hypotheses, malformative and iatrogenic, were discussed.
