    Abstract:

    Acute type B aortic dissection can lead to acute limb ischemia which is of poor prognosis. The emergency is the revascularization of the limb. Several revascularization therapies are proposed and are constantly changing. We report a case of an acute limb ischemia revealing an acute type B aortic dissection treated surgically.

    Key words: Aortic dissection, Limb ischemia, Surgery.
