The article focuses on the thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for treating aortic diseases. It informs about the main diagnoses with the TEVAR which include thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA), thoracic aortic dissection (TAD) and thoracic aortic injury (TAI). It discusses several complications after the TEVAR including brain injury, spinal cord injury and retrograde aortic dissection.
