A descending thoracoaortic aneurysm excluded by stent-grafting had expanded during a period of one and a half years. There was no endoleakage but there was shortening of the stent-landing on both proximal and distal sides. Aneurysm seemed to be pressed by blood pressure through the graft in TEE. The aneurysm was replaced by an artificial graft through a left heart bypass. Because ESP diminished during the operation, VIth intercostal arteries were reconstructed immediately, and CSF drainage was performed. Following this procedure there was no paraplegia.

A 73-year-old woman was admitted to undergo three simultaneous operations: aortic valve replacement (AVR), coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. She had previously undergone percutaneous catheter intervention in the left coronary anterior descending artery. Computed tomography revealed an abdominal aortic aneurysm 5cm in diameter. Aortic valve stenosis (AS) was shown with a pressure gradient of 60mmHg, and 90% stenosis of the distal right coronary artery was also shown. CT scan and aortography revealed porcelain ascending aorta. The patient underwent simultaneous operations because of severe AS, coronary artery disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm. An aortic cannula was placed in a position higher in the ascending aorta with no calcification. Cardiopulmonary bypass was started using a two-staged venous cannula through the right atrium. At first, AVR was performed with cardioplegic solution and ice slush. Because it was difficult to inject the cardioplegic solution into the coronary artery selectively due to the calcified orifice of coronary artery, we closed it immediately by removing the calcified intima of the porcelain aorta after completion of AVR. The second cardioplegic solution was injected through the ascending aorta. Next, CABG to RCA was performed using the right gastroepiploic artery without anastomosis to the ascending aorta. Cardiac surgery was first performed, followed by abdominal aortic aneurysm repair after discontinuation of cardiopulmonary bypass. The patient was extubated the next day and stayed for two days in the intensive care unit. She is very well now one year after the operation.

A 84-year-old man was admitted with an abdominal tumor. Prosthetic graft replacement between the aorta and the left external iliac artery was performed 17 years previously. CT scan and angiography showed a large anastomotic pseudoaneurysms at the sites of proximal and distal anastomosis. A Y graft prosthesis replacement was performed. The size of the proximal anastomotic pseudoaneurysm was 7×6×5cm, and that of the distal anastomotic pseudoaneurysm was 15×10×10cm. They resulted from cutting at anastomosis. Large anastomotic pseudoaneurysms at both sites is rare.

A 38-year-old man underwent replacement of the ascending aorta and aortic arch for acute type A dissection. On the 11th postoperative day he developed mediastinitis. Omental transposition was performed successfully. The patient was readmitted for bloody discharge from the wound. He suffered from back pain suddenly. Computed tomography and aortography revealed an anastomotic pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta. Emergency reoperation to replace the ascending aorta with a new prosthesis was performed. The postoperative course was uneventful.
