Abstract

We report a 70-year-old female who complained of shortness of breath and a pulsating suprasternal lump. CT scan showed innominate artery dilatation. In addition, operative exposure showed tortuous arteries and a common origin of the left common carotid and innominate arteries. Surgical correction by innominate artery division and reimplantation at the ascending aorta was performed, and the patient’s symptoms completely disappeared after the procedure.
