This original article retrospectively analyzes the outcome of 359 patients after TEVAR at seven centers. All patients were stratified regarding the modified arch landing nomenclatur (MALAN). The rate of proximal endograft failure was significantly lower in patients with favorable landing area (MALAN 2/III and 3/III). Regarding these results, the MALAN classification can be used to guide decisions in pre-TEVAR planning.
