The case of a middle-aged woman with an extensive thoraco-abdominal aneurysm who underwent exclusion-bypass grafting (Hardy procedure) is presented. The patient had an uneventful recovery. Studies one year after surgery showed all grafts to be well functioning and the aneurysm thrombosed. In the authors' opinion, the method is a valuable alternative to more radical operations designed for treatment of thoraco-abdominal aneurysm.
