Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has become an attractive alternative treatment option for thoracic aortic disease. New devices and advanced image-guided procedures are continuously expanding the indications. This article focuses on currently available endovascular solutions for thoracic aortic disease and future 'all endovascular' directions of TEVAR. Currently available endovascular solutions, such as hybrid operations, chimney stent grafting and transapical stent graft deployment, for ascending aortic pathologies are presented. Additionally, the impact of upcoming new technologies, such as endovascular treatment of Stanford Type A dissections of the ascending aorta, is elaborated. With improving device technology, diverse available stent grafts and imaging modalities, TEVAR has become safer and holds promising potential to expand treatment options, especially for the ascending aorta and the aortic arch.
