Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Endovascular treatment of thoracic aorta (TEVAR) often requires supra-aortic arterial trunks debranching to provide an acceptable proximal landing zone. To facilitate TEVAR procedures involving landing zones 1 to 3, we propose a systematic 4-step strategy with (1) a primary surgical cervical exposure of the supra-aortic trunks, (2) insertion through this access of a 5F introducer in the first non-covered supra-aortic trunk to delineate precisely the landing zone, (3) followed by deployment of the thoracic endograft through one femoral access, and (4) immediate completion of the surgical debranching, i.e. transposition or bypass.
