Abstract

Complete transabdominal approach to TAAA type IV represents an appropriate substitute for thoracoabdominal approach, without compromising safety of the patient. This approach is less traumatic, especially in patients with impaired pulmonary function, because there is no thoracotomy and any complications that could follow this approach.
