Brief Summary:
The incidence of postoperative pneumonia after aortic surgery reaches 60%. In experimental lung model, endotracheal tube with taper-shaped cuff has been shown to decrease microaspiration. This effect has never been demonstrated in patients. The investigators hypothesize that use of endotracheal tube with taper-shaped cuff decreases the incidence of postoperative pneumonia in patients after aortic surgery.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: endotracheal tube with taper-shaped cuff Device: Endotracheal tube TaperGuard
Patients are intubated by endotracheal tube with taper-shaped cuff (TaperGuard, Mallinckrodt)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of first episode of postoperative pneumonia after aortic surgery [ Time Frame: Within the first 28 days after surgery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Microaspiration [ Time Frame: Day 1 and day 2 ]
  2. Length of ICU stay [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of ICU stay, an expected average of 3 weeks ]
  3. Mortality [ Time Frame: Day 28 and day 90 ]
