Abstract

<p>A 74-year-old man with multiple aortic aneurysms and shaggy aorta was simultaneously treated by conventional open repair for an abdominal aortic aneurysm and endoluminal stent grafting for a thoracic aortic aneurysm. We performed intermittent clamping of the visceral and carotid arteries under an extracorporeal circulation circuit without a blood flow pump, which lead to the avoidance of embolization in spite of the disadvantage of endoluminal stent grafting for atheromatous aorta.</p>
