An aberrant right subclavian artery arising from the proximal portion of the descending thoracic aorta is the most common congenital anomaly of the aortic arch. Open repair is typically performed in such cases; however, it may be associated with a high rate of neurological complications and mortality, particularly in patients contraindicated for major open vascular reconstruction. We successfully treated a ruptured aberrant right subclavian artery using stent grafts in an 81-year-old female patient who had previously undergone open aortic arch repair. The stent graft technique is useful for patients without vascular ring symptoms who require repeat thoracotomy.
