We performed a one-stage hybrid surgical and endovascular procedure to manage a 6.5-cm right aortic arch aneurysm associated with anomalous origin of the supra-aortic vessels in a 70-year-old man. Complete surgical rerouting of the supra-aortic vessels was followed by the endovascular repair of the right aortic arch aneurysm with a Zenith TX2 stent graft (Cook, Bloomington, Ind) and Z-track plus introducer system. The procedure was successfully completed with exclusion of the aortic arch aneurysm, and the patient was discharged on postoperative day 7. Aortic arch aneurysms with complex anatomy may be successfully treated with a less invasive hybrid approach using new generation devices.
