Less-invasive management of left subclavian artery in stent-grafting for distal aortic arch disease.


Simple coverage of the left subclavian artery (LSA) in thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is still a controversial procedure. We present our modified strategy dealing with LSA in TEVAR. Hand-made stent grafts were placed more proximal beyond the LSA for 104 patients. In elective 76, preoperative LSA occlusion test was performed on 31 patients, and… (More)
