I am having a thoracic endovascular aortic repair on 1/25/2017. Dr. said he could do it through the groin and that I needed about 10 inches of the aorta relined. I guess this is not uncommon but I have never heard of this and am a bit frightened. I had a abdominal aortic anyurism repaired this way in 2016. It turned out good with no problems. Has anyone else had this done and would they tell me how it went?
