A case of esophageal cancer infiltrating the left bronchus pars membranacea and the aneurysmal aortic wall was resected en bloc with the bronchial and aortic wall. Descending aorta was substituted by means of a Dacron prosthesis fitted with expandable devices at both ends, allowing a very significant reduction of the clamping time and simplification of this part of the procedure.
