A 16-year-old adolescent presented with systemic hypertension due to a hypoplasia of the aortic arch resulting in a significant stenosis. In childhood, he underwent surgery for aortic coarctation through a left posterolateral thoracotomy. We present the successful repair of the complete aortic arch that could be achieved applying a patch plasty of bovine pericardium through an anteroaxillary thoracotomy.
