PURPOSE: To report endovascular treatment of an expanding aneurysmal false lumen several years after successful stent-graft deployment in the descending thoracic aorta for type B aortic dissection. CASE REPORT: A 54-year-old woman who had a stent-graft placed at the entry site of a type B aortic dissection 5 years prior presented with abdominal discomfort and palpable abdominal mass. Successful remodeling of the thoracic aorta was demonstrated by computed tomography; however, a false lumen aneurysm in the abdominal aorta had expanded from 4.8 to 6.5 cm and caused symptoms. She was successfully treated with 3 additional stent-grafts at 3 re-entry sites. Six months after the procedure, the false lumen aneurysm was completely excluded. CONCLUSIONS: Endovascular repair of the re-entry sites can prevent further expansion of false lumen aneurysm, which occurs in some patients with type B dissection treated with stent-grafts.
