We report the case of a patient with a chronic DeBakey type IIIb aneurysm who underwent thoracic endovascular aortic repair to seal the primary entry tear and stent-graft insertion to cover the re-entry tear at the renal artery. The procedure was performed in order to achieve complete thrombosis in the entire thoracoabdominal false lumen, leading to favorable aortic remodeling. Simultaneously, ethanol ablation and renal artery embolization were performed to treat a renal tumor suspicious of renal cell carcinoma. Radical nephrectomy then confirmed clear cell carcinoma. To the best of our knowledge, no other cases of this type have been reported in the Korean literature.
