THE REPAIR OF THORACOABDOMINAL aortic aneurysms remains a formidable challenge. The development of the inclusion technique by Crawford1 simplified the operation and improved its success rate. Frequently, visceral vessels are reimplanted with separate anastomoses.1-7 In addition, separate side anastomoses may be used for large lumbar and intercostal arteries.1-6 Each of these anastomoses can be technically demanding and time-consuming.
