Is endovascular Thoracic Aneurysm repair suitable for everybody?

No. Endovascular repair is preferred option for the majority of patients, not though suitable for everybody. Open surgery versus endovascular repair relies upon the aneurysm anatomic characteristics.

Pushing the limits of endovascular repair, when unindicated, can result in multiple reinterventions and eventual need for open repair. Your vascular surgeon will guide you towards the best option.
