A case of Takayasu’s arteritis resulting in extensive fusiform aneurysmal dilatation of the entire aorta extending from the aortic root to the abdominal bifurcation associated with aortic regurgitation is described. She underwent successful radical replacement of the aortic root, ascending, transverse arch and proximal part of the descending aorta employing simultaneous modified Bentall and Elephant trunk techniques. During aortic arch replacement the brain was protected by selective antegrade innominate perfusion under moderate hypothermia. A pattern to the best of our knowledge, has not been reported earlier.
