Thoracic endovascular aortic repair has broadened the spectrum of treatment options for various acute and chronic thoracic aortic diseases. In clinical practice, aneurysms of the descending aorta are rarely limited to 1 segment. Thus, various surgical and endovascular options have been developed to offer treatment to those patients with more extended descending thoracic aortic disease. We have summarized the most common methods of arch rerouting, depending on the aortic involvement, emphasizing that these techniques should be used very selectively by experienced cardiovascular surgery teams.
