An arteriosclerotic aneurysm of an aberrant right subclavian artery was repaired by median sternotomy with use of deep hypothermia and circulatory arrest. The procedure was combined with myocardial revascularization. All reported cases of aneurysmal dilatation of this vessel are reviewed, and the technical aspects of repair are described.
