Saphenous vein graft pseudo-aneurysm after coronary bypass grafting occurs rarely. Reoperation could be challenging in particular when the pseudo-aneurysm of the proximal vein graft anastomosis happens in patients who had combined replacement of the ascending aorta. We report a case of a patient with a pseudo-aneurysm of the proximal vein graft anastomosis from a modify bentall conduit implanted eight years before treated successfully by a hybrid approach.
