A single-stage procedure for repair of the whole thoracic aorta via median sternotomy is described. The procedure is based on exposure of the descending aorta, posterior to the pericardium in the oblique sinus, or exposure of the aorta in the supracoeliac region and the placement of an endoprosthesis as an intraluminal graft. The ascending aorta and arch repair can be carried out as usual. The procedure has been performed in five patients with either dissection or aneurysm in the period between 1992 and 1997.
