The intra­tho­rac­ic sub­cla­vian ­artery is a rare loca­tion for a periph­er­al arte­ri­al ath­e­ros­cle­rot­ic aneu­rysm when com­pared with the femo­ral and pop­li­teal arter­ies. Resection of the aneu­rysm and replace­ment with a pros­thet­ic graft has come to be the most com­mon­ly per­formed pro­ce­dure for this prob­lem. Because of the tight adher­ence of sur­round­ing tis­sues such as the vagal nerve, phren­ic nerve, jug­u­lar veins, and their branch­es, we pre­ferred an exclu­sion meth­od with revas­cu­lar­iza­tion to the aneu­rys­mor­rha­phy and ­achieved a good ­result. We ­report the clin­i­cal ­aspects of such a case.
