Coverage of the left subclavian artery in thoracic endovascular aortic repair is still a controversial procedure. We report a case of 30-year-old patient with a chronic rupture of the aortic isthmus and short proximal lending zone (10 mm) treated by thoracic endovascular aortic repair using a balloon catheter inflated at the origin of the left subclavian artery (and protruding in the aortic arch) to both preserve the arterial branch patency and fully exploit the proximal neck.

Abstract

Coverage of the left subclavian artery in thoracic endovascular aortic repair is still a controversial procedure. We report a case of 30-year-old patient with a chronic rupture of the aortic isthmus and short proximal lending zone (10 mm) treated by thoracic endovascular aortic repair using a balloon catheter inflated at the origin of the left subclavian artery (and protruding in the aortic arch) to both preserve the arterial branch patency and fully exploit the proximal neck.
