Abstract

Treatment of an aberrant right subclavian artery (arteria lusoria) aneurysm is traditionally performed surgically or via a hybrid approach. To our knowledge, a fully percutaneous approach has not yet been reported. We describe the fully endovascular exclusion of an aberrant right subclavian artery and thoracic aortic aneurysm. This approach has the potential advantage of avoiding complications of an open surgical repair, particularly in patients of advanced age and/or with multiple comorbidities.
