Conventional surgical repair of ascending aortic pseudoaneurysms following prior cardiac operations is performed with a high operative mortality. We report a 67 year old female patient with an ascending aortic pseudoaneurysm detected 3 years after coronary bypass surgery. The patient was treated with ascending aortic endovascular stent graft placement and extraanatomic reconstruction of supraaortic branches without using sternotomy.
