Questions still remain regarding its long-term durability and complication rate. There is a growing awareness of new entry tears induced by the stent graft, a potentially lethal complication. We report the case of a 74-year-old woman with a complicated retrograde type A aortic dissection treated with endovascular stent graft coverage. She required open surgical conversion after she developed a symptomatic, new entry tear induced by the stent graft. Copyright 2013 Society for Vascular Surgery. Published by Mosby, Inc.
