We report a patient with an arch aneurysm with an aberrant right subclavian artery who underwent successful endovascular treatment with the chimney technique and bilateral carotid artery-to-subclavian artery bypasses. We used a chimney graft in the left carotid artery to preserve its flow. The bilateral carotid-to-subclavian artery bypasses preserved perfusion of the bilateral vertebral arteries. A thoracic stent graft was subsequently deployed in the aortic arch over the chimney graft of the left carotid artery. There have been few reports about less-invasive treatment for arch aneurysm with aberrant right subclavian artery. This technique was an effective strategy to avoid a high-risk open operation.
