Journal of Vascular Surgery: Cases, Innovations and Techniques


Aortic arch pseudoaneurysms can be caused by previous surgery, infection, or trauma. In select patients with small tears and no evidence of infection, local repair can be performed using an open or endovascular technique.1 Open surgical repeat surgery has increased risks and endovascular repair has been especially appealing for the elderly, higher risk patients, and patients with multiple prior procedures.2 We have reported the use of a ductal occluder device in a patient with a large aortic arch pseudoaneurysm.3 Our patient has provided written informed consent for the report of his case details and imaging studies.
