Complex pathologies of the thoracic aorta have always been a challenge in cardiac surgery, since they may require multiple operations with high peri-operative risks and hospital mortality rates. The technique and the devices developed during recent decades, such as the introduction of the Elephant Trunk and branched graft techniques, have improved the possibility of the repair in such patients, simplifying the procedures (1,2). The frozen elephant trunk technique (FET) is the latest evolution in this field (3).

Abstract

Complex pathologies of the thoracic aorta have always been a challenge in cardiac surgery, since they may require multiple operations with high peri-operative risks and hospital mortality rates. The technique and the devices developed during recent decades, such as the introduction of the Elephant Trunk and branched graft techniques, have improved the possibility of the repair in such patients, simplifying the procedures (1,2). The frozen elephant trunk technique (FET) is the latest evolution in this field (3).
