The aim of this study is to describe our clinical experience with an extra-large self-expandable stent specifically designed to treat aortic lesions (E-XL, Jotec GmbH, Hechingen, Germany), now commercially available in Europe. The E-XL was used at our Institution in 14 patients (mean age, 56±12 years; 9 males) with the following indications: improve proximal fixation (4 cases), type I endoleak (2 cases), aortic dissection with static malperfusion (1 case) and dynamic malperfusion (7 cases). Early results have been shown to be safe and effective in different clinical settings, including in emergency cases. This peculiar aortic stent could be useful in the armamentarium of the endovascular surgeon.
