Abstract

Crawford type II thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) secondary to chronic dissection was successfully treated with hybrid therapy comprising surgical visceral reconstruction and dual Inoue stent graft implantation. The proximal single-branched Inoue stent graft effectively sealed the entry located near the left subclavian artery and simultaneously excluded the TAAA, while the distal tubular Inoue stent graft sealed the reentry; thus, the artery of Adamkiewicz was left unexcluded and intact between the two Inoue stent grafts. The visceral arteries were reconstructed using a quadrifurcated retrograde bypass with posterior aortic tunneling and end-to-end distal anastomosis to all four vessels to achieve a curved and smooth configuration.
