Surgery for a complicated Stanford B acute aortic dissection, such as rupture or malperfusion, is still a challenge. We undertook endovascular therapy for ruptured Stanford B acute aortic dissection in two patients. A homemade stent graft was deployed in an 84-year-old woman with a massive mediastinal hematoma; and an aortic extender of Excluder was used for a 76-year-old man with left hemothorax. Both patients recovered without major complications. Careful follow-up is mandatory. Endovascular therapy for a ruptured Stanford B acute aortic dissection seems feasible and effi cient.
