Endovascular approaches to the aortic arch are challenged by unique anatomy and physiology of this area. Simple application of conventional endovascular technology and technique for abdominal or descending thoracic aortic disease to the aortic arch is insufficient to achieve effective and durable repairs. Appreciation of these challenges has led to developments in endovascular technology as well as complex strategies to deal with individual patient anatomy that hold the potential for continued improved outcomes in both the short and the long term.
