Patients with thoracic aortic aneurysms sometimes also have peripheral vascular disease. In such cases, staged operations are usually performed in order to avoid additional morbidity. We have achieved good long-term outcomes in 2 patients with use of a single-stage surgical technique. Our novel procedure uses a pre-sewn side branch with a Dacron graft as the inflow source for the aortofemoral bypass during thoracic aortic aneurysm repair. As of 25 and 52 months' follow-up, these grafts were patent in our 2 patients. We believe that this procedure is a safe and easy single-stage operation that achieves favorable patency. To our knowledge, this is the first report to document the use of a pre-sewn perfusion branch of a Dacron graft as an inflow source for aortofemoral bypass.
