Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The chimney graft (CG) technique was introduced to rescue accidentally covered aortic branches during aortic endovascular repair. It extends the sealing zone. There is concern about "gutter" type I endoleak (EL-I) and about the durability of CGs. The aim of the present report was to analyze the rapidly increasing existing data.
