Novel endovascular repair of the small thoracic aorta: customizing off-the-shelf endoluminal grafts

J Card Surg. 2007 Sep-Oct;22(5):434-5. doi: 10.1111/j.1540-8191.2007.00444.x.


Treatment of the small thoracic aorta is not currently amenable to standard endovascular repair. New customized endovascular approaches are necessary for these patients who are not candidates, for open repair. We describe a novel endovascular repair of a thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm associated with a prior coarctation repair.
