Abstract

We report the case of a 69-year-old woman with Marfan syndrome and a history of multiple thoracic aortic surgeries and a coexisting dissection of her abdominal aorta. She had presented with a ruptured para-anastomotic thoracic aortic aneurysm due to an infected graft. She was treated with two parallel Nellix endografts that were placed in the true and false lumens. The surrounding endobags were inflated with a polymer that completely sealed the ruptured aorta and preserved blood flow to the visceral arteries. Postoperative imaging showed complete exclusion of the aneurysm with patency of all aortic branches and no evidence of endoleak.
