As would be expected, the early mortality after repair of arch aneurysms is considerably higher, approaching 25% in series by Crawford and Saleh from 1981, [19] by Crawford et al from 1979, [20] by Columbi et al from 1983, [21] by Ergin et al from 1982, [22] and by Galloway et al from 1989. [23] More contemporary results from Coselli and Ueda demonstrate an operative mortality of 6-12%. Stroke rate varied from 3-22%. Renal failure that necessitated dialysis occurred in 7% of patients.
