Mid and Distal Arch Aneurysm Treatment: Optimal Strategy, Surgical Approach, and Outcome
Endovascular approaches have become the first-line therapy for descending thoracic aneurysms. Due to the variable histologic, anatomic, and clinical presentations of mid and distal arch aneurysms, careful consideration must be given to available treatment options. A panel of experts met at the 2016 EACTS Annual Meeting in Barcelona, Spain, to discuss the endovascular approach, including patient selection, surgical technique, and secondary open repair. Mohamad Bashir of Barts Heart Centre is joined by Joseph Coselli of the Texas heart Institute/Baylor College of Medicine, Kenji Minatoya of Kyoto University, and Martin Czerny of the University Hospital Freiburg.
