Performance of thoracic stent grafts

Anatomically straightforward aneurysms of the descending aorta can be safely treated with the most stent-grafts. Patients with thoracic aneurysm have often thin, tortuous and calcified access vessels and require low profile and flexible delivery systems. The deployment of stent grafts in the aortic arch is challenging requiring perfect conformability and apposition of the device to both greater and lesser curves of the arch. Post-traumatic aortic lesions and aortic dissections need to be treated with dedicated stent grafts.
