The ascending aorta is approximately 3 cm in diameter, depending on age, sex, and body surface area. Among approximately individuals in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis, the mean diameter of the ascending aorta was ± cm, 7,8 and in none of these normal individuals exceeded 5 cm.

The diameter of the aortic arch is similar. The aorta is the conduit through which blood ejected from the left ventricle is delivered to the systemic arterial bed. In adults, its diameter is ~3 cm at the origin and in the ascending portion, cm in the descending portion in the thorax, and –2 cm in the abdomen.

Many recent technical advances have enhanced the safety of open surgery of the descending thoracic aorta. Previous to the refinement of these adjuncts and techniques, surgeons such as Stanley Crawford showed that simple aortic cross-clamping with expeditious surgery produced the best results.
