Endovascular techniques have deeply modified the indications to open surgical repair in nearly all the vascular tree and especially in areas where the invasiveness of open surgery is real like the thoracic aorta. However their anatomical and technological limits on one hand and uncertainty on their long term results on the other hand still leave a large place for open surgery. Also, immediate as well as late results of open surgery have continued their progress during the endovascular era, rendering it competitive in trained centers for fit selected patients.
