Although conservative operations such as reduction aortoplasty or wrapping for an ascending aortic aneurysm remain controversial procedures, the wrapping method has recently shown good long-term results. We report the sock method as an alternative wrapping procedure for an ascending aneurysm extending to the base of the innominate artery. This simple method can easily be performed in selected patients.
