  • Long-Term Durability of Open Thoracic and Thoracoabdominal Aneurysm Repair SEMINARS IN VASCULAR SURGERY Fischbein, M. P., Miller, D. C. 2009; 22 (2): 74-80

    Abstract:

    Results of open surgical repair of descending and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms have improved dramatically over the years. Nevertheless, while adjunctive protective strategies, such as spinal cord drainage and distal aortic perfusion, have improved outcomes, clinical challenges remain. In the current era, thoracic aortic surgeons must possess both open and endovascular stent-graft capabilities to offer these complex patients the most optimal and individualized treatment approach. Herein we summarize the contemporary outcomes of open surgical repair of patients with either descending thoracic or thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms, focusing on the risk of complications and means for preventing their occurrence.
