OBJECTIVE Endoluminal grafting is emerging as a less invasive alternative to the treatment of descending thoracic aorta diseases. Endoleaks (continued pressurization of the treated aorta external to the endoluminal graft) are a potential complication. We reviewed our cumulative endovascular experience for descending thoracic aorta pathologies with respect to the management of endoleaks and associated patient outcomes. METHODS As part of a single-site investigational device-exemption protocol… CONTINUE READING
