Total endovascular aortic arch repair using chimney and periscope grafts for treatment of ruptured aortic arch pseudoaneurysm

Diagn Interv Radiol. 2019 Jul;25(4):328-330. doi: 10.5152/dir.2019.18378.


Aortic arch pseudoaneurysms are rare but quite fatal when ruptured. Owing to its less morbidity and mortality compared with the surgical approach, endovascular and hybrid treatment methods are increasingly preferred. In this report, we present a 58-year-old male patient who has a ruptured saccular aortic arch pseudoaneurysm treated by endovascular approach using parallel grafts.
