Abstract

Objective: This study evaluates the safety and effectiveness of a unique composite thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) construct (proximal stent graft and distal bare metal stent) for the treatment of patients with complicated type B aortic dissection (cTBAD). Methods: In this prospective, single-arm, multicenter study, patients with cTBAD were treated with an endovascular system consisting of proximal TX2 thoracic stent grafts and distal bare metal dissection stents (Zenith Dissection Endovascular System; Cook Medical, Bloomington, Ind). Indications for enrollment were branch vessel malperfusion, impending rupture, aortic diameter
