Imaging plays a crucial role in the postoperative monitoring of thoracic aortic repairs. With the development of multiple surgical techniques to repair the ascending aorta and aortic arch, it can be a daunting challenge for the radiologist to diagnose potential pathologies in this sea of various techniques, each with their own normal postoperative appearance and potential complications. In this paper, we will provide a comprehensive review of the postoperative imaging in the setting of thoracic aortic repairs, including the role of imaging, components of thoracic aortic repairs, the normal postoperative appearance, and potential complications.
