Abstract This is a case of a patient with two saccular aneurysms in the descending aorta. Two self-expanding stents were inserted through an opening in the aortic arch, guided by the use of an Olympus endoscope, under profound hypothermia and total circulatory arrest. the bloodless field made possible the identification of the main thoracic branches, facilitating the positioning and deployment of both stents. Immediate postoperative recovery was excellent. (Ann Thorac Surg 1998;66:256-8). (C) 1998 by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
