Abstract
Stent-grafting and open graft replacement was introduced to reduce the comp lications of suture anastomosis in the descending aorta. We applied this te chnique in the treatment of a patient with multiple thoracic aneurysms. The elephant trunk procedure was used for thromboexclusion. A single branched graft was placed easily without twisting. In patients with aneurysms at bot h the proximal and distal thoracic aorta, combined stent-grafting and open graft replacement is an excellent approach. (C) 2001 by The Society of Thor acic Surgeons.
