Abstract

The Djumbodis™ dissection system was introduced as an alternative to aortic arch replacement in acute type A aortic dissection involving the arch. In our own experience, some patients with Djumbodis implantation developed distal aortic arch and descending aortic aneurysm during subsequent follow-up and required additional interventions. However, as there is a high incidence of fracture associated with the Djumbodis system, further endovascular interventions are not feasible. We report a case of successful open descending aortic replacement in a patient with a fractured Djumbodis stent system. © The Author(s) 2020.
