Endovascular repair has been introduced to decrease the morbidity and mortality associated with open surgical repair of aortic arch pathology. This case illustrates a 71-year-old male patient with an asymptomatic saccular aortic arch aneurysm treated by total endovascular aortic repair using 3-vessel inner branch stent graft. Postoperative course was unremarkable, and the patient was discharge home on postoperative day 3. Total endovascular aortic arch repair is a suitable alternative in higher-risk patients with aortic arch aneurysms who are not ideally suited for open surgical repair.
