Abstract

Endovascular repair of emergent syndromes involving the ascending aorta is uncommon. We describe an acute disruption of the ascending aorta during stenting of the pulmonary artery, resulting in an acute aortopulmonary artery defect and severe pulmonary edema. The disruption was treated successfully using an endovascular approach, with rapid resolution of the patient's pulmonary edema.
