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.
