OBJECTIVES Spinal cord injury (SCI) after the frozen elephant trunk (FET) technique is more frequent than after endovascular aneurysm repair. This study aimed to identify risk factors of SCI after the FET technique. METHODS We performed the FET technique for extended thoracic aortic disease in 224 patients (mean age, 72.1 ± 10.9 years) from September 1997 to December 2011. The patients included those with acute type A aortic dissection (n = 103), acute type B aortic dissection (n = 30… CONTINUE READING
