Abstract Most abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAA) are asymptomatic and are found on physical exam or incidentally during radiological studies for other indications. These aneurysms are repaired primarily because their risk of rupture increases geometrically as the size exceeds 5 cm. The potential morbidity of intraoperative visceral and spinal ischemia involved with TAAA repair may be reduced with various adjunctive maneuvers.
