Hybrid treatment of a giant thoracic aneurysm in a 38 year-old woman. Journal of vascular surgery Soler, R. J., Fabre, D., Watkins, A. C., Fadel, E., Mercier, O., Haulon, S. 2018


A 38-year-old woman, with no comorbidities, presented to an outside institution with a 10-cm aortic arch and descending thoracic aortic aneurysm. After an aborted attempt at hybrid repair, she underwent successful, staged repair with zone 1thoracic endovascular aortic repair and open aneurysmal sac revision. The patient made an uneventful recovery with computed tomographic evidence of complete aneurysmal exclusion. This case demonstrates many of the techniques and issues in the evolving field of aortic arch repair.
