In our institution, total arch replacement for distal arch aneurysms is performed through a median sternotomy with antegrade selective cerebral perfusion. The distal anastomosis to the completely transected descending aorta is made through the aneurysmal sac. We report on three interesting cases presenting late dilatation of the aneurysmal sac due to collateral flow after total arch replacement.
