Objectives:  Description and evaluation of new endovascular techniques and hybrids for the treatment of the complex aortic lesions.

Methods:  Retrospective study among patients contra-indicated for a conventional surgery and presenting with an aneurysm of the aortic arch (group 1), thoraco-abdominal (group 2), or juxta-renal (group 3).  The treatment was carried out by transposition of the supra-aortic trunks associated the establishment of covered endoprostheses(s) for the group 1, retrograde mesenteric and renal bridging associated the establishment of covered endoprosthese(s) for the group 2, of endoprotheses fenestrated for the group 3.  An evaluation of the patients and an angioscanning of the operated site were programmed 1, 6; 12, and 24 months after the intervention.

Results:  From March 2002 to January 2005, 13 patients (average age 71 years) were operated for aneurysm of the arch (n=4), thoraco-abdominal (n=3), and juxta-renal (n=6).  A coronary revascularisation without CEC was carried out in a concomitant way among 2 patients of the group 1.  Un banding of the aorta was carried out among 2 patients of the group 2.  A patient of the group 1 died brutally in the 7th post-operative day.  A patient of group 3 presented with an aggravation of his preoperative renal insufficiency.  The average follow-up was 9 months.  No secondary gesture was carried out.  The maximum diameter of the aneurism decreased among 5 patients and remained stable at the 8 others.

Conclusion:  The treatment of complex aortic lesions among patients presenting with contra-indications to a conventional surgery can be carried out with the assistance of endovascular techniques.  The continuation of the follow-up is necessary before recommending these techniques as the first option.
