Abstract <p>Acute aortic dissection is a life-threatening condition, and may be treated with aggressive hypotensive drug therapy, but emergency surgery is often necessary. We evaluated the effectiveness of stent-grafts for the treatment of acute aortic dissection. Aortic dissection was surgically created in the descending thoracic aorta in 20 adult mongrel dogs. A stent-graft was inserted in the entry position. The tested animals were divided into 4 groups based on re-entry type and blood pressure alteration rate (AR) after acute aortic dissection. After insertion of the stent, the following results were observed: a) AR improved; b) proximal descending aorta and superior mesenteric arterial flows increased; c) cardiac function improved; and d) the dissecting aortic diameter decreased in the presence of pressure gradient group. From these results, insertion of a stent-graft to treat acute aortic dissection was judged to be effective.</p>
