Introduction: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is the first treatment option for many thoracic aortic pathologies. Especially after aortic dissections, it is possible to have progression during follow-up with appearance of new lesions on arterial wall. Herein, we report a case of Penetrating Aortic Ulcer (PAU) post release of Thoracic endoprosthesis. Presentation of case: A 67-years-old male with hypertension and diabetes mellitus was followed at our hospital after an emergency procedure for Type B aortic dissection (TBAD) complicated by symptomatic large infrarenal AAA and treated with a proximal TEVAR plus chimney for left subclavian artery and PETTICOAT with EVAR for abdominal aortic disease. Follow up at 15 months showed a deep PAU with partial crush of stent in Left Subclavian Artery. Thus, we performed a left carotid-subclavian bypass and subsequently a TEVAR procedure with release of Bolton Relay endoprosthesis (Terumo Aortic, Sunrise, Florida, United States). Discussion: In literature there are few studeis that focus on migration after TEVAR during follow-up. Elongation, changes of tortuosity on thoracic aorta after TEVAR, can help to determine a migration of prosthesis. In this case Bolton Relay endoprosthesis (Terumo Aortic, Sunrise, Florida, United States) has permitted to improve precision and quality of procedure. Conclusion: In literature there are few studies reporting complications of TEVAR post prosthesis migration. In this case, Bolton Relay endoprosthesis was useful and safe.
