A right-sided aortic arch associated with an aberrant subclavian artery is a rare anomaly. Regardless, this condition is clinically relevant because mortality is associated with rupture, morbidity results from compression of mediastinal structures, and the surgery is complex. We describe the successful surgical repair of this vascular anomaly by totally debranching the neck vessels and placing an endovascular stent-graft to exclude the ruptured Kommerell's diverticulum.
