The authors used a separating stent-graft to treat Stanford type B aortic dissection. The separating stent-graft consists of two stents: a stent-graft and an inner bare stent. The separating stent-graft has three parts: a proximal stent, a graft made of synthetic polyester textile fiber, and a distal stent. A 12-F introducing sheath was used. After the separating stent-graft was placed, false-lumen thrombosis was evident in all six patients during a follow-up period of 206 days. The major advantages of this technique are that a cutdown and blood pressure control are not required.
