Abstract

High mortality rates resulting from the surgical treatment of Type B aortic dissections have played an important role in seeking newer alternative therapy modalities for the treatment of the pathology. Especially since the early 1990s, endovascular grafting has become a popular option in the treatment of aortic diseases and with the increasing experience and advances in technology, it has, in recent years, become an alternative approach for the treatment of aortic dissections.
