Abstract

Of all of the aortic segments, the aortic arch is the last frontier for endovascular treatment. The main difficulty for arch repair is the lack of an appropriate proximal landing zone of at least 2 to 3 cm required for endograft sealing and anchoring to diminish the risk of endoleaks or migration. We used branched endografts to treat two cases of aortic aneurysms that required complete arch endografting, with successful aneurysm exclusion.
