Abstract

Aortic aneurysms and stenosis are widely treated with endovascular procedures in the current era. In this report, we present endovascular stent grafting for symptomatic treatment of severe thoracic aortic stenosis caused by an aortic sarcomatoid carcinoma in a 73-year-old female. The peri-and post-operative courses were complicated with tumor embolisms that were managed by both endovascular and surgical measures.
