Outcomes of Repair of Kommerell Diverticulum
ConclusionsOpen and endovascular approaches have a high success rate and low mortality risk. Selection of the specific type of intervention should be based on patient anatomy, additional needed procedures, and comorbid conditions.

Outcomes of Repair of Kommerell’s Diverticulum
ConclusionsOpen and endovascular approaches have a high success rate and low mortality risk. Selection of the specific type of intervention should be based on patient’s anatomy, additional needed procedures, and comorbid conditions.

Tracheostomy After Thoracoabdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair: Risk Factors and Outcomes
ConclusionsPatients who undergo tracheostomy after TAAA repair have a high risk of early and late mortality, as well as prolonged hospitalization. Strategies for improving survival outcomes in tracheostomy patients warrant investigation.

Repair of Thoracic and Thoracoabdominal Mycotic Aneurysms and Infected Aortic Grafts Using Allograft
ConclusionsRadical resection and in situ reconstruction with CPA avoids placing prosthetic material in an infected field and provides good early and midterm outcomes. However, early postoperative imaging is necessary given the risk of pseudoaneurysm formation.

Evolution of Simplified Frozen Elephant Trunk Repair for Acute DeBakey Type I Dissection: Midterm Outcomes
Conclusions Simplified FET for treating acute DeBakey type I dissection has evolved and remained safe. It promotes aortic remodeling, and simplifies management of chronic aortic complications.

Beyond the Aortic Root: Staged Open and Endovascular Repair of Arch and Descending Aorta in Patients with Connective Tissue Disorders
Conclusions Most patients with CTDs who require operations beyond the aortic root have aortic dissection and require multiple reinterventions. Staged repair strategies, including open repair in combination with TEVAR, are feasible, and benefits outweigh risks. These patients require lifelong imaging surveillance.

Outcomes of Open Repair of Mycotic Descending Thoracic and Thoracoabdominal Aortic Aneurysms
Conclusions Open repair of mycotic descending thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms remains the gold standard of therapy. Aggressive intraoperative debridement with in situ prosthetic reconstruction permits a high rate of success in this very high risk cohort of patients. Lifelong antibiotic suppression therapy may prevent late prosthetic graft infection.

Evolution in the Management of Aberrant Subclavian Arteries and Related Kommerell Diverticulum
Conclusions Aberrant subclavian arteries and associated Kommerell diverticulum can be treated with acceptable rates of mortality and morbidity. The evolution toward an endovascular approach did not appear to affect late outcomes, suggesting that the choice of treatment should be based on patient-specific anatomy and associated comorbidities.

Impact of Surgical Stroke on the Early and Late Outcomes After Thoracic Aortic Operations
Conclusions Surgical stroke is associated with high hospital mortality and PNDs that decrease late survival and the physical component score of the QOL survey.

Propensity Adjusted Analysis of Open and Endovascular Thoracic Aortic Repair for Chronic Type B Dissection: A Twenty-Year Evaluation
Conclusions Intervention for CBAD can be performed with excellent results, either by an open or endovascular approach. The higher rate of treatment failure after TEVAR warrants modification of current device design or endovascular approach before broad application of this treatment strategy.
