A 68-­year-old man ­with periph­eral vas­cular dis­ease and asso­ciated ­risk fac­tors, was diag­nosed by CT-­scan and aor­tog­raphy ­with an ath­e­ros­cle­rotic ­descending tho­racic ­aortic aneu­rysm. The ­patient was ­treated by suc­cessful endo­vas­cular ­grafting of the aneu­rysm ­using a mid­ster­notomy inci­sion and the inser­tion of a tho­racic ­stent-­graft ­through a T-­Dacron ­tube ­sutured in the ­ascending ­aorta, ­without the aid of car­di­o­pul­mo­nary ­bypass.
