This article describes the modifications made to the TAG thoracic device (WL Gore, Flagstaff, AZ, USA) to better accommodate to anatomies seen in young trauma patients and patients with dissections. The device was initially approved and tested for degenerative thoracic aneurysms. The newer conformable-TAG (cTAG) is better able to accommodate to tight aortic arches and smaller aortic diameter with circumferential aortic wall opposition.
