This brief report describes an unusual hybrid approach complication of aortic arch disease. An acute stent kinking in the first post-operative day promoted ventricular fibrillation and death. Adequate oversizing was achieved and intraoperative angiogram showed no proximal or distal leaks. Unfavorable outcomes are highly under-reported and describing complications are a key instrument to improve this technique.
