Abstract

The goal of this study was to select branched endograft designs that could fit most aortic arch anatomies. Such off-the-shelf endografts, once available, would be an endovascular therapeutic option to consider in the acute setting and would shorten the design and manufacturing process. We retrospectively analyzed the endograft plans of all custom-made aortic arch branched endografts implanted between 2013 and early 2018 provided by the Cook Planning Center (EMEA Planning Services; Cook Medical, London, United Kingdom). Available data points of the endograft plans include proximal, intermediate, and distal endograft diameters; number of sealing stents; total length of the endograft; and number of branches. There were 286 two-branch endografts analyzed. We divided the endografts in three groups according to their proximal diameters: 34 mm, 36 mm, and 38 mm (group 1); 40 mm and 42 mm (group 2); and 44 mm and 46 mm (group 3). In group 1, 63% of the endografts had one proximal sealing stent, whereas in group 3, 63% had two proximal sealing stents. The distal diameters of the endografts ranged from 26 mm to 46 mm. The mean length was 236 mm (186-256 mm). A shorter standardized length of 211 mm was selected to anticipate distal extensions. According to our analysis, most group 1 patients could have been treated with a 38-mm proximal diameter and 30-mm distal diameter endograft with one sealing stent; most group 2 patients, with a 42-mm proximal diameter and 32-mm distal diameter endograft with both one and two proximal sealing stents; and most group 3 patients, with a 46-mm proximal diameter and 36-mm distal diameter endograft, also with both one and two proximal sealing stents. Five standardized off-the-shelf endografts can cover a majority of aortic arch anatomies and offer an option for acute endovascular treatment of aortic arch disease.
