Obstruction of the thoracoabdominal aorta and/or its branches with subsequent organ ischemia is a frequent complication of aortic dissection.Surgical and percutaneous fenestrations have been used and endovascular stenting has emerged as an additional less invasive approach. In somecases, surgical revascularization may be the most successful procedure. We report two patients who underwent surgical revascularization of theceliac trunk and superior mesenteric artery for delayed abdominal malperfusion due to aortic dissection.
