Traditional open surgical repair for mycotic aneurysms of the thoracic aorta is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Endovascular repair has been reported as an alternative treatment in patients with mycotic thoracic aneurysms. This article reports our experience of endovascular stent graft placement in three patients with mycotic aneurysms of the thoracic aorta and compares the results with similar reports on the literature.
