Patients who have undergone the elephant trunk procedure because of aortic dissection may subsequently present with a descending aortic aneurysm. We describe the technique of "endograft aortic control by inflating a compliant aortic occlusion balloon," in which a balloon is placed in the proximal descending aortic graft without cross-clamping to avert problems of hemorrhage at the second stage of the elephant trunk procedure.
