A 78-year-old man was hospitalized for aortic arch aneurysm concomitant with right subclavian artery aneurysm. Maximum diameter of each aneurysm was 65 mm and 40 mm, respectively. Both aneurysms clearly needed to be treated. However, simultaneous surgery of total arch replacement (TAR) and right subclavian artery grafting carries both technical difficulty of surgical exposure and considerable risk of bilateral recurrent nerve palsy. Thus, to avoid these serious problems, we chose hybrid treatment. TAR was performed as the 1st procedure, followed by stent graft placement to right subclavian artery aneurysm. At the 1st procedure, an 8 mm graft was anastomosed to right common carotid artery in end to side fashion. This was used for cerebral perfusion, and after that, another end of this graft was anastomosed to a branch of quadrant graft which was anastomosed to brachiocephalic artery. Then, right common carotid artery was ligated at proximal portion to create a proximal landing zone. As the 2nd procedure, excluder leg was deployed via right axillary artery without difficulty. He was discharged with uneventful postoperative course.
