Acute dissection is the most dangerous aortic disease with a high mortality, if remained untreated. The standard treatment varies as surgical, medical and endovascular depending on the morphology of the dissection and the presence of associated complications. Endovascular treatment options are gradually evolving and becoming more popular in surgical practice. In this article, we report a successful endovascular treatment of an acute type-1 dissection in a 62-year-old female case who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting two months prior.
