Subclavian artery aneurysms are comparatively rare in peripheral aneurysms. We experienced a case of intrathoracic aneurysm originating from the proximal part of the right subclavian artery. A 78 year-old man was referred to our hospital with the diagnosis of a right subclavian artery aneurysm. Enhanced computed tomography demonstrated an intrathoracic aneurysm, originating from the right subclavian artery just proximal of its origin. Through a median sternotomy and supra-infraclavicular incision, we reconstructed the brachiocephalic and right common carotid arteries and bypassed to the distal part of the right subclavian artery by using a T-shaped vascular graft and the aneurysm was excluded.
