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.
