Endovascular treatment of an aberrant right subclavian artery aneurysm with use of the Zenith iliac plug

By John Kedora, Brad Grimsley and Gregory Pearl

Abstract

Aberrant right subclavian artery aneurysms are rare but demonstrate a propensity toward rupture; thus, early elective repair is mandated. Novel endovascular modalities are available to offer less-invasive treatment for a patient population with increasing comorbidities. We report a case of a 65-year-old woman with an aberrant right subclavian artery aneurysm causing dysphagia lusoria. The aneurysm was excluded proximally at Kommerell's diverticulum with a Zenith iliac plug and excluded distally by surgical ligation combined with a right carotid-subclavian artery bypass to preserve extremity perfusion
