We report a case of two iatrogenic complications after endovascular repair of a type B aortic dissection treated for abdominal aortic branch ischemia. A rupture of the common iliac artery occurred first during the procedure. A type A dissection occurred 12 days later. The proximal part of the aortic endovascular graft had created a tear in the aortic wall resulting in a retrograde type A dissection. Although aortic endovascular grafting is apparently associated with less morbidity and mortality, potentially lethal complications, both acute and delayed, may arise.
