Sub­cla­vian ­artery aneu­rysms are rel­a­tively ­rare, and the sur­gical ­approach ­depends on the loca­tion (intra­tho­racic or extrath­o­racic) and ­size of the aneu­rysm. ­Right sub­cla­vian ­artery aneu­rysms are usu­ally oper­ated ­upon ­using a suprac­la­vic­ular ­approach or ­median ster­notomy inci­sion ­with ­right suprac­la­vic­ular exten­sion. We ­treated a ­right intra­tho­racic sub­cla­vian ­artery aneu­rysm by sub­cla­vic­ular transs-sternal ­approach. ­This sur­gical ­approach is rec­om­mended for treat­ment of ­right intra­tho­racic sub­cla­vian ­artery aneu­rysms for its ­easy ­access and excel­lent cos­metic ­results.
