Abstract

The frozen elephant trunk might be considered one of the most appreciated innovations during the last decades to treat complex thoracic aortic lesions. Many useful tips have been progressively introduced to standardize the procedures and, nowadays, the improved post-operative outcomes contributed to spread the procedure. The following article will provide a comprehensive review analysis of the Frozen Elephant Trunk (FET) technique, throughout the current available devices, possible surgical indications and primary post-operative complications.
