During aortic arch replacement, construction of the distal anastomosis represents the crucial step because of the time limit of circulatory arrest. If the aneurysmal neck is located at the level of the 5(th) thoracic vertebra, it becomes difficult to carry out through a sternotomy approach. We describe a case in which an interrupted suture technique, similar to that used for valve replacement, was employed to maximize the limited exposure and achieve a water-tight anastomosis.
