This paper shows that landing zone optimization using aortic septotomy resulted in a much higher positive aortic remodeling rate, whereas standalone TEVAR outcomes without adjunctive procedures for cTBAD were unfavorable. The authors show that routine aortic septotomy may have a positive effect on long-term cTBAD survival and expand TEVAR candidacy.
