      The impact of degenerative connective tissue disorders on outcomes following endovascular aortic intervention in the global registry for endovascular aortic treatment.
      reported their analysis on medium term outcomes of patients with diagnosed connective disorders (CDs) compared to those without CD who were included in Global Registry for Endovascular Aortic Treatment (GREAT) following endovascular treatment of aortic pathology and concluded that the current guidelines,

      suggesting that the use of endovascular technology in patients with diagnosed connective tissue disorder and aortic pathology should be reserved for use only in an emergency situation or in the event that complex redo surgery is required, could be modified on the basis of GREAT data.
