In brief: Stent grafts

Special stent graft techniques are being researched to allow for preservation of the aortic arch branches and avoid a more invasive chest incision.
Treatment of ascending aorta aneurysms involving the coronary arteries still will require bypass surgery, although may be combined with stent graft techniques.
