Abstract: Backgroud: Traumatic Aortic Dissection is a emergency that patients will face soon death, even there is no enough time to transport patient to the hospital. In this study we retrospectively analyze the long-term therapeutic effects of endovascular treatment of traumatic Type B aortic dissection to get some inspiration for the next step treatment and to provide a useful guidance. Method: 21 patients with Stanford type B aortic dissection caused by trauma endovascular treatment after strict condition assessment in our vascular center from December 1999 to May 2012 was recruited into this retrospective study. The overall diameter of the aorta, the number of tears and the extent of the dissection were observed based on three-dimensional reconstruction of the CTA during the follow-up. The recurrence of the operation and the 2-year and 5-year survival rates were recorded. Conclusion: Endovascular treatment of traumatic aortic dissection increases the survival rate of these patients who cannot tolerate traditional open surgery. This survival benefit sustained throughout the long-term follow-up.
