Endovascular aortic repair is a new alternative to conventional surgical repair of aortic pathology. It is a less invasive technique and gives less hemodynamic stress to the patients who may have concomitant systemic diseases, compared with open aortic reconstruction. We report 2 cases of patients with thoracic aortic diseases, who underwent endovascular stent graft placement under general anesthesia. We also include a review of the literature about anesthetic management of endovascular aortic repair and present our opinions about the need to choose a suitable anesthetic technique for each patient, the method to recognize and handle the possible complications and hemodynamic changes to which we have to pay attention during procedures.
Key Words: anesthetic management; endovascular aortic repair; endovascular stent graft
