The recent availability of thoracic endografts has expanded the options for treatment of thoracoabdominal aortic pathology. However, disease that involves the visceral aortic segment presents a special challenge due to the need to preserve mesenteric perfusion. We present three patients in whom preliminary retrograde visceral artery reconstruction was used as an adjunct prior to endovascular repair.
