We report the case of a 28-year-old woman with type B chronic aortic dissection extending from a ductus diverticulum aneurysm. The patient was successfully treated by interposition of a Hemashield 26-mm woven Dacron graft with a left posterolateral thoracotomy approach. Circulatory arrest through profound hypothermia and short retrograde cerebral circulation were employed during proximal anastomosis of the graft.
