Aim: was to analyze long-term resuts of true lumen reconstruction in complicated aortic dissections type В with help of balloon-expandable stents under intravascular ultrasonic (IVUS) guidance as a preoperative evaluation of anatomy and morphology of lesion.

Materials and methods: 47 patients witn type В aortiс dissections underwent endovascular treatment in our departmert n 20 cases - IVUS was used for irtraoperative anatomy and morphology verification. Complications developed n 16 patients, and true lumen was reconstructed by stent-graft implantation (to cover proximal fenestration) followed by balloon-expandable stents implantation at the level of visceral arteries under IVUS control at every stage. 87,5% of patents were man, mean ago 51 8—16,2 years.

Results: Technical success was 100% True lumen total reconstruction was reached in every case under precise IVUS control. Visceral arteries malperfusion was not observed at hospital period or follow-up. З0-day mortality rate was 6,25% (1 case due to aortic rupture in uncovered part of aorta - 7 days after procedure). All 15 discharged patients survived for 1st year. Mean follow-up period is 3,3±1,6 years. One patient died due to aortobronchial fistula, 1 due to repeated stroke and 1 due to cancer. At CT-scan 2 years after implantation (10 cases) fractures of balloon-expandable stents were observed, without аnу influence on intraluminal size or stenotic lesion. True lumen size stayed stable for 1 year.

Conclusion: true lumen reconstruction under IVUS control seems to be feasible and effective in complicated Type B dissections, even with the use of balloon-expandable stents. The usage of additional intraoperative visualization - intraaortic IVUS is the key point in the development of advanced endovascular methods.
