Although thoracic endovascular aortic repair is less invasive, its limitations include anatomy and pathology of the aorta, proximity of major branches, and significant complication and reintervention rates. We retrospectively reviewed a 2-surgeon experience (J.W.F. and J.S.C.) with deep hypothermic… CONTINUE READING
