We report a 63-year-old female patient developing a pseudoaneurysm three years after patch-plasty of an aneurysm located at the distal thoracic aorta. Redo-operation was performed including total replacement of the descending thoracic aorta with reimplantation of distal intercostal arteries using small-caliber interposition grafts. This case presentation underlines the ineffectiveness of patch repair for the treatment of aortic aneurysms. Furthermore, the surgical technique of reimplantation of intercostal arteries using a separate graft is discussed.
