The dissection of the descending aorta is a serious affection regarding to its mortality and its complications. It becomes chronic after the 14 Th day following the first signs of dissection.
The authors report the case of a 55 years old patient who has presented a type III dissection diagnosed at the chronic period. The persistance of the pain has indicated the implantation of a stent at the intimal tear. This new endovascular treatement of the aorta diseases is a promising and less invasive alternative to the surgical treatement. It may reduce the morbidity and the mortality of this pathology but it needs an accurate and performant imaging techniques
