We ­report a ­rare ­case of a 39-­year-old man ­with ­type A ­aortic dis­sec­tion ­involving a ­right-­sided ­aortic ­arch ­with the ­symptom of vas­cular ­ring. Com­puted tomog­raphy scan­ning and angio­graphy ­were per­formed to ­define the ­extent of the dis­sec­tion and the ­anatomy of the ­branching ves­sels. The ­ascending ­aorta was ­replaced ­through a ­median ster­notomy and ­right thor­a­cotomy ­using a hypo­thermic car­di­o­pul­mo­nary ­bypass asso­ciated ­with selec­tive cere­bral per­fu­sion and par­tial cir­cu­la­tory ­arrest, and his ­symptom of vas­cular ­ring dis­ap­peared post­op­er­a­tively.
