Patients suffering retrograde type A dissection after TEVAR for type B dissection are at a higher risk of mortality than their spontanous counterparts and the kind of optimal therapy remains obscure. We present a rare case of successful open surgical repair where distal open anastomosis was accomplished cutting off the un-covered stent portion and suturing a vascular prosthesis to the dissected distal aortic arch including the covered stent part. The clinical course was regular. Immediate and radical repair in the aortic arch may be the adequate response in such instances.
