Abstract

We describe an operative technique of less invasive transposition of an aberrant right subclavian artery on the right common carotid artery through a partial upper mini-sternotomy. This approach offers direct control of the entire course of the artery, as division of the artery is possible directly at the level of it offspring and therewith, the full length of the artery is available for mobilization and transposition without a use of synthetic interposition graft.

Keywords:

Aberrant right subclavian artery, Arteria lusoria; RCCA; TEE
