Aortic arch aneurysms extending proximally to the left subclavian artery have traditionally been approached through a median sternotomy and a staged elephant trunk procedure requiring a left thoracotomy or thoracoabdominal incision. We describe a novel technique for repair of such aneurysms in a single-stage, hybrid approach using bypass grafts arising from the ascending aorta to all arch and upper abdominal visceral arteries followed by endovascular exclusion of the aortic aneurysm.
