We report a case of a patient with a history of previous coronary artery bypass grafting undergoing endovascular aortic repair of a large pseudoaneurysm in the ascending aorta. Due to the limitations of the current technology, the endograft was deployed through a left ventricular transapical approach by using a left mini-thoracotomy.
