Dysphagia lusoria occurs secondary to an aberrant right subclavian artery coursing posterior to the oesophagus. Open ligation and transposition to the right carotid artery via a right supraclavicular approach has been described as a minimally invasive method. However, approaching the origin of the aberrant right subclavian artery through this incision can be extremely challenging. A persistent aberrant right subclavian artery stump may account for postoperative residual dysphagia. This article describes a safe, effective and reproducible surgical approach to dysphagia lusoria due to a non-aneurysmal aberrant right subclavian artery.
