Aortic disection is an urgent clinical problem that rapid diagnosis and appropriate treatment is life-saving. Hypertension is one of the major risk factors. In this paper, a 56 years old female patient with hypertension and renal failure was presented. In this case after clinical suspicion aortic dissection was diagnosed with imaging studies. Endovascular aortic repair was performed but after surgery, patient died because of possible hemorrhage complication.

In aortic disection, diagnosis and treatment could be fast. In chronic kidney disease the prognosis of these patients is adversely affected. Despite proper surgical intervention accompanying medical problems like chronic kidney disease have negative effects on survival.
