Abstract

Treatment of huge aneurysms involving the ascending aorta and the aortic arch with compression of the surrounding structures represents a surgical challenge. The case of a patient affected by respiratory insufficiency and sternal erosion caused by chronic giant aortic aneurysm is reported. The use of a stepwise approach and selective cerebral arterial perfusion ensured successful operative management, avoiding circulatory arrest and enabling an expeditious postoperative recovery.
