Presented herein is a review of the literature concerning the use of uncoated metal stents in surgery of aortic dissection. A conclusion was drawn that the results of using the Djumbodis stent should not be directly extrapolated to the outcomes obtained in case of the E-XL stent which had mainly been used for hermetic sealing and for creation of optimal conditions for TEVAR.

It is pointed out that the use of uncoated metal stents in aortic surgery is acceptable, however, it is required to solve a series of problems associated with elimination of certain shortcomings of the available devices. Also, it is necessary to work out clear-cut indications for using these stents.

KEY WORDS: aorta, aortic aneurysm, uncoated metal stent, Djumbodis, E-XL.
