Simultaneous Endovascular Approach for Aortic Arch Aneurysm Associated with Aortic Valve Stenosis. What Have We Learned?
Aortic arch aneurysms are rarely isolated entities, and most frequently associated with either ascending or descending aorta pathologies. Association with aortic valve stenosis is uncommon and traditional surgical treatment is always challenging. Here we report a minimally invasive and endovascular management of these two pathologies in a 89-year-old man with LAD-stented ischemic cardiomyopathy. We describe our initial therapeutic strategy, per procedure difficulties and final management of this challenging case. Finally, we discuss the different therapeutic options for the endovascular treatment of aortic arch aneurysm associated with aortic valve stenosis.
