Aortic dissection is a complex pathology that carries significant morbidity and mortality if not treated in a timely fashion. While the open repair remains the gold standard treatment for patients with acute type A dissection, ascending aortic replacement is associated with high incidence of arch and descending thoracic aorta residual false lumen patency and aneurysmal degeneration. Multiple approaches have been used over the decades to address aneurysmal degeneration in the arch and thoracoabdominal aorta. This article summarizes anatomical requirements for total endovascular repair of aortic arch and TAAAs using fenestrated and branched endografts.
