After diagnosis of thoracic aortic aneurysm, active treatment including surgical thoracotomy and endovascular repair should be carried out.

Total aortic arch replacement with the elephant trunk technique

Total aortic arch replacement, refers to the use of artificial blood vessels to replace the diseased thoracic aorta. The actual surgical procedure and post-operative results vary with the anatomical location of the thoracic aorta. The main complications of the procedure were bleeding, severe arrhythmia, coronary insufficiency, and central nervous system complications. The 1-year and 5-year survival rates were 80% - 90% and 60% - 80%, respectively.

Minimally Invasive: Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair TEVAR

TEVAR is an alternative to open surgery and has the advantage of less trauma, faster recovery, fewer complications and fewer contra-indications. During TEVAR, under the constant monitoring of DSA, a folded metal scaffold covered with artificial vascular membrane are inserted into the aorta, With the continuous advances in the endovascular devices, some thoracic aortic aneurysms involving supra-aortic arch branches can also be repaired via endovascular repair, such device include single branch integrated stent (Castor).
