OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study was to determine technical and clinical results in endovascular repair of thoracic aortic diseases necessitating stent-graft anchoring across the arch vessels. METHODS The causes for endovascular treatment in 58 patients (aged 20 to 84 years) were aneurysms (n = 32), acute type A (n = 2) and type B dissections (n = 17), posttraumatic transections (n = 4), iatrogenic dissection (n = 1), and penetrating ulcers with an intramural hematoma (n = 2).
