The collapse of an abdominal aortic endograft is a rare event. We present the case of a 60-year-old man with an abdominal endograft who came to the emergency department with chest, back, abdominal, and lower extremity pain in addition to a cool left foot. On imaging, he was found to have a type B aortic dissection and a collapsed abdominal endograft. Subsequently, the patient was taken to the operating room and treated with a thoracic endovascular aortic repair, abdominal aortic cuff, and an iliac stent. Our study details this case and thoroughly reviews similar cases in the literature.
