Subclavian artery aneurysms are rare. They occur predominantly on the right side. The most frequent cause of proximal subclavian artery aneurysm is atherosclerosis. An aneurysm of the left subclavian artery with normal origin is less common, and it is extremely rare when associated with an aortic coarctation. This report describes the first case of bilateral subclavian artery aneurysms associated with a pseudocoarctation of the aorta. Successful resection of the left subclavian artery aneurysms and the pseudocoarctation of the aorta was achieved using partial cardiopulmonary bypass.
