Summary An aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) is a rare arterial anomaly. Although a few cases of total endovascular repair for the ARSA aneurysm have been previously reported, anatomical limitations and the possibility of endoleaks remained. In this case, we created 4 holes on the stent graft for each cervical branch, with reference to the preoperative computed tomography findings. This approach might enable us to repair all types of thoracic aortic aneurysms with ARSA with each anatomical feature.
