Visceral ischemia following surgical intervention for type A aortic dissection is a rare complication. We hereby report a case of aortic dissection with postoperative compression of renal and visceral arteries requiring fenestration. Although percutaneous techniques are the initial preferred treatments of these complications, surgery was straightforward due the presence of a large intra aortic thrombus. Magnetic Resonance Angiography was the clue examination in this case report, defining the correct diagnosis with an accurate postoperative control.
