The optimal surgical management of patients presenting with an aortic coarctation together with other cardiovascular disorders is unclear. In this study, we report the case of an adult male with an aortic coarctation associated with a bicuspid aortic valve and an ascending aortic aneurysm. The patient underwent single-stage repair involving the Bentall technique and total arch replacement combined with stented elephant trunk implantation, which was performed through median sternotomy. We consider this procedure to be a suitable alternative for treating these complex cases.
