Abstract

In this section, we present six cases of thoracic endovascular aortic repair. The first two cases are “classic” descending aorta aneurysms, whereas the third case is a pseudoaneurysm of the thoracic aorta on a ruptured atherosclerotic plaque, treated with a simple tubular endograft. The fourth case is a rupture of the thoracic aorta. Two acute aortic type B dissection cases were managed with a covered stent-graft to exclude the primary entry tear associated with uncovered stents to cover the remaining aorta. Due to the absence of adequate proximal neck in the first dissection case, a carotid to subclavian bypass was necessary.
