For patients with Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms (TAAs) requiring intervention, endovascular treatment for the placement of a device called a stent-graft is usually recommended. This clinical trial aims to investigate the safety and effectiveness of a newly redesigned device which is more flexible and on a smaller delivery device than existing devices. The RelayPro Thoracic Stent-Graft will be offered to patients with TAAs meeting certain inclusion criteria. This device may be particularly useful in patients with narrowed arteries leading to the legs in whom passing the current larger devices can be a challenge.
