Transesophageal Echocardiography Guidance for Stent-Graft Repair of a Thoracic Aneurysm is Facilitated by the Ability of Partial Stent Deployment ANNALS OF VASCULAR SURGERY Crimi, E., Lee, J. T., Dake, M. D., van der Starre, P. J. 2012; 26 (6)


Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is routinely used in our Institution for monitoring correct positioning of thoracic aortic stent grafts. We present a case of successful endovascular repair of three discrete thoracic aortic aneurysms with Zenith TX2 endovascular stent grafts in an 82-year-old female patient. Our focus is on the increased value of TEE guidance because of the ability of partial stent deployment and manipulation during insertion.
