From the Second Department of Surgery Fukui Medical University Hospital Fukui, Japan
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.
