Endovascular intervention has revolutionized the treatment of aortic disease, extending the cohort of patients eligible for repair. Accurate planning for endovascular aortic repair is essential. Recent advances in modern software have demonstrated potential for improving outcomes and enhancing the decision making process beyond 3D measurements and intraoperative navigation techniques. With increasing uptake and complexity of endovascular therapies requiring multidisciplinary collaborations, it has become apparent that planning must extend to the preparation of entire interventional teams and support the early identification and prevention of potentially harmful events. This paper will examine recent advances not only in morphological planning and computational modelling, but also the role of software in the preparation of teams and prevention of error.
