Total aorta replacement is a major and increasingly successful surgical procedure. The paper describes a patient whose progressive aneursymatic disease spread from the ascending segment to the bifurcation over a three-years period during which time after three separate operations, the aorta was totally replaced. The paper describes the diagnostic and surgical procedures deployed and shows the results of angiographic and CT scans. Credit for the success of the replacement is also given to the highly skilled anaesthetists and nurses involved.
