Subclavian artery aneurysms are relatively rare in comparison with other peripheral aneurysms. We report a 65-year-old woman with multiple atherosclerotic aneurysms of the subclavian artery, aortic arch saccular aneurysm and abdominal aortic aneurysm. Two-staged operations by which the infrarenal abdominal aorta was replaced first and median sternotomy extending to the supraclavicular space for the concomitant resection of bilateral subclavian as well as aortic arch aneurysm resulted in good results.
