BARRERA, Juan G et al. Endovascular treatment of thoracic aorta. Rev. Col. Cardiol. [online]. 2006, vol.13, n.2, pp.102-109. ISSN 0120-5633.

Compared with the conventional treatment, endovascular therapy in thoracic aortic aneurysm shows the best results, being the election treatment for the pathology of the descending thoracic aorta, due to its low peri-operative morbid-mortality. Surgical treatment by retro-peritoneal route and/or endovascular for infra-renal abdominal aortic aneurysm is especially safe in octogenarian patients or in those with a high mortality rate. This institutional cohort show peri-operative and follow-up results similar to those reported in the world literature.

Keywords : aneurysm; thoracic aorta; abdominal aorta; endoprosthesis; endovascular.
