Abstract

A 79-year-old male patient complicated with aortobronchial fistula after replacement of descending thoracic aorta with ringed graft. He underwent replacement of the aortic arch using a four branched vascular graft and open stent grafting to replace the descending thoracic aorta after removing the ringed-graft through median sternotomy. This procedure is useful for patients as the left thoracotomy is risky and the distal anastomotic site of the descending thoracic aorta is too far to anastomose.
