Stent-grafting and open graft replacement was introduced to reduce the complications of suture anastomosis in the descending aorta. We applied this technique in the treatment of a patient with multiple thoracic aneurysms. The elephant trunk procedure was used for thromboexclusion. A single branched graft was placed easily without twisting. In patients with aneurysms at both the proximal and distal thoracic aorta, combined stent-grafting and open graft replacement is an excellent approach.
