PURPOSE: To describe the transapical approach for thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR).
CASE REPORT: Three patients, 2 elective and one emergent, with thoracic aorta aneurysm are described with vascular or direct aortic inaccessible access, who underwent TEVAR through transapical access. The technique is described in detail emphasizing the usefulness of the through-and-through guidewire, rapid pacing and transoesophageal echocardiography guidance.
CONCLUSIONS: Our early experience shows that the transapical approach for TEVAR procedures is feasible in experienced hands. The selection of the patient and careful planning based on imaging is of paramount importance and should lead to the most suitable access site tailored to the need of the individual patient.
