Abstract

Objective: Residual False Lumen (FL) patency after chronic type A or type B Aortic Dissection (AD) treatment is an independent factor of poor longterm outcome. The aim of this study was to evaluate ancillary endovascular procedures in progressive AD, to improve false lumen thrombosis and aortic remodeling. Methods: Between August 2005 and December 2017, 59 ancillary endovascular procedures were performed in 35 consecutive patients for aneurysmal expansion, aortic rupture or malperfusion syndrome. Sixteen patients (45.7%) presented an initial type A AD treated by open aortic surgery, and 19 (54.3%) presented a type B AD, previously treated by TEVAR. Aortic remodeling was evaluated on the preprocedural and on the most recent computed tomography angiography followup for each patient. Results: At a median follow-up time of 60.7 months [44.4-76.8], 59 ancillary endovascular procedures were performed. At the end of the follow-up, positive remodeling was obtained in 85.7% of cases with a complete false lumen thrombosis in 9 patients (25.7%), and a diameter reduction or stability (<5 mm increase) in 21 patients (60.0%). The mean total false lumen thrombosis score before the first ancillary procedure was 0.97 (± 0.90) vs. 2.54 (± 0.98) at the end of the follow-up, p<0.0001. One patient died of a retrograde dissection, 2 days after a proximal aortic stent graft extension. Conclusion: Ancillary endovascular procedures are effective and safe to promote aortic remodeling in progressive chronic AD.
