We performed emergency repeat surgery for aneurismal rupture due to graft perforation with mechanical stress of the Z stent in a kinking graft after frozen elephant trunk procedure. Graft kinking occurred due to cranial migration of the Z stent. It is important to prevent stent dislodgement in order to achieve long-term durability and reliability in the frozen elephant trunk procedure.
