We report the case of a 39-year-old man who underwent surgical repair for traumatic Stanford type B acute aortic dissection. He was involved in a traffic accident, resulting in multiple rib fractures and a sternum fracture. On investigation, he was also found to have anatomical anomalies, namely, situs inversus and abnormality in the aortic arch and neck vessels. Thoracic endovascular aortic repair was performed as it is a less invasive procedure, thus recommended in such cases. A fenestrated thoracic endovascular aortic repair using the Najuta stent graft was found to be effective in this case where the anomalous anatomy was pre-existing.
