OBJECTIVE Sizing of aortic endografts is an essential step in successful endovascular treatment of aortic pathology, although consensus regarding the optimal sizing strategy is lacking. Some proximal oversizing is necessary to obtain a seal between the stent graft and the aortic wall and to prevent the graft from migrating, but excessive oversizing might influence the results negatively. In this systematic review, we investigated the current literature to obtain an overview of the risks and… CONTINUE READING
