Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has evolved as an alternative to open repair for a range of aortic pathology. The earliest endovascular repairs were limited to descending thoracic aortic pathology, but growing experience has resulted in the use of stents in the ascending aorta and aortic arch. This review presents the current literature pertaining to thoracic endoluminal stent repair, with emphasis on the role of intravenous contrast-enhanced multidetector computed tomography, the primary cross-sectional imaging modality used in these patients. Radiologists play an integral role in patient selection, procedural planning, and postprocedural follow-up.
