Abstract

Based on the risk of ischemic injury to the spinal cord and the risk of renal failure and mortality, Crawford and colleagues classified thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms into four extents. Type I thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms involved the descending thoracic aorta proximal to the level of 6th rib to above the renal arteries; type II extends from the proximal descending thoracic aorta above the level of T6 to below the renal arteries; type III extends from below the level of T6 in the descending aorta and a variable extent in the abdominal aorta; type IV thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm involved the abdominal aorta without involvement of the descending aorta.
