A 45 years old man underwent a surgical replacement of ascending aorta and aortic arch for a
type A aortic dissection. A 3 months CT follow-up documented a significant pseudoaneurysm

deployment of four Penumbra Coil inside the pseudoaneurysm, ensuring a proper exclusion
as highlighted in long-term CT follow-up
