Presented herein is a clinical case report regarding hybrid surgical treatment for a saccular aneurysm of the aortic arch in a female patient. While undergoing a routine medical check-up she had been found to have fluorographic evidence strongly suggesting dilatation of the aortic thoracic portion. Based on the findings of further examination we determined the indications for surgical treatment of the thoracic portion of the aorta. The woman was subjected to reconstruction of the arch and the descending portion of the thoracic aorta according to the frozen elephant trunk technique.

KEY WORDS: aortic aneurysm, frozen elephant trunk, saccular aortic aneurysm, hybrid treatment, E-vita open plus.
