Abstract

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is a life-saving treatment for blunt thoracic aortic injury. We report long-term outcomes of two young patients who underwent TEVAR for blunt thoracic aortic injury with first-generation thoracic stent grafts. The off-label use of the endograft affected the outcomes: one case of open surgery conversion due to an aortoesophageal fistula and one case of endovascular relining for a voluminous pseudoaneurysm associated with a type III endoleak. Long-term follow-up is crucial in TEVAR, especially in case of a first-generation device used in an urgent setting.
