Changtian Wang, Evelyn Regar, Mario Lachat, Ludwig K. von Segesser, Francesco Maisano, Enrico Ferrari

Wang and colleagues present a systematic review of outcomes reported in 26 articles for 67 patients who underwent endovascular treatment for diseases of the ascending aorta, excluding type A dissection. The authors expect a gain in popularity of this intervention in select high-risk patients, but they consider further analysis necessary.
