Recent studies suggest an increased risk of neurologic complications after coverage of the left subclavian artery (LSA) during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). The preventative role of preoperative revascularization of the LSA using carotid-subclavian bypass or transposition remains controversial. We assessed this increased risk and the role of revascularization by undertaking a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature.
