Abstract

Acute type B aortic dissection is a complex pathological process with variable clinical manifestations ranging from uncomplicated vascular involvement to complicated sequelae that can be catastrophic. Specific treatment strategies are determined by a combination of location and extent of the dissection, time from onset of symptoms, co-morbid patient risk factors, and dissection-related complications such as branch vessel (arch, visceral, lower extremity) ischemic compromise or impending rupture. Despite significant improvement in operative mortality for acute type B dissections, it remains high in the presence of visceral ischemia and rupture. The recent development of endovascular interventions provides a less invasive, more expeditious management alternative to stabilize the dissection, prevent rupture, and restore critical branch vessel perfusion. The option of endovascular treatment includes a suite of procedures including aortic stent-graft placement, percutaneous balloon fenestration of the dissection septum, and branch vessel stenting. Currently, endovascular intervention for acute complicated type B dissections is generally accepted as an appropriate treatment modality. It remains unclear however, whether stent-graft placement for uncomplicated type B dissection is beneficial in preventing disease progression. Ongoing and future randomized trials may help to create a consensus regarding the advisability of intervening acutely on all type B aortic dissections.
