We describe the case of a 23-year-old patient presenting for redo aortic arch surgery because of recoarctation and poststenotic aneurysm formation after patch aortoplasty in infancy. Using the hemi-clamshell approach, the entire aortic arch was replaced and the supraaortic branches were reimplanted. The applied surgical technique using hypothermic extracorporeal circulation without cardiac arrest allowed an uninterrupted cerebral and spinal cord perfusion due to stepwise clamping of the aortic arch during reconstruction and resulted in an excellent neurologic outcome at six-month follow-up.?
