Aortic dissection (AD) is a life-threatening disease, and endovascular repair by stent graft is an effective treatment. Surgery often fails for a variety of reasons, such as aortic arch variation. We present the case of a 27-year-old female with aortic dissection with a rare anatomical aortic arch variation caused by chest trauma. This patient recovered well after endovascular repair. This case report demonstrates endovascular repair can be applied to aortic dissection patients with rare anatomical aortic arch variation.
