PMID:  18381148     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Covered stent grafts are currently used for arterial aneurysm exclusion, aortic dissection, or peripheral occlusive disease. A new indication to endograft was applied to perform resection of the thoracic aorta for infiltration of an adjacent lung cancer into the vessel wall, avoiding a major vascular intervention for aortic graft interposition associated with tumor resection.
