OBJECTIVES: Less invasive stent graft (SG) repair was compared with open surgery for patients with descending thoracic aortic diseases. DESIGN: Thirty six patients undergoing SG repair (SG group) were matched for age, sex, location and pathology of aortic disease with a 36-patient surgical cohort (OS group), and retrospective matched case-control study was performed with respect to outcomes and risk factors for adverse outcomes. RESULTS: Mortality rate was 5.6% in OS group and none in SG group (p=0.4930), and there was no significant difference in stroke and paraplegia rates between two groups. A higher prevalence of secondary procedures due to endoleak was seen in the patients of SG group (p=0.0113). Perioperative hypotension was an independent risk factor for in-hospital mortality (p=0.0071, odds ratio=34) and preoperative renal dysfunction was independent risk factor for paraplegia (p=0.0076, odds ratio=17.6). CONCLUSIONS: Although the importance of patient selection is emphasized to prevent endoleak, mortality rate was low in patients who underwent SG repair. SG repair is a promising alternative technique to open surgery for thoracic aortic diseases.
