In brief: Covered Stent
The latest treatment modality for an ascending aortic aneurysm would be an endograft (covered stent).
One of the challenges is maintaining flow to the great vessels of the aortic arch. Branched and fenestrated endografts are currently being developed and tested to accommodate the aortic arch and the ascending thoracic aorta.

Still the gold standard for this problem although there are lots of people working on an endovascular solution and also minimally invasive surgery.
