The patient had an uneventful recovery post-operatively. He demonstrated strong palpable pulses of the common femoral arteries with an almost complete normalisation of the arterial hypertension. Postoperative CT-scan showed a good position of the stent in the descending aorta with diminished opacification of the collaterals. The patient was discharged on day 5 post op.
