Abstract

A ductus arteriosus aneurysm (DAA) is a rare but potentially fatal condition in adults. In the past, open surgery was the only available option for treatment. Nowadays, endovascular repair has emerged as a safe and less invasive treatment option for aortic aneurysms. However, there is little experience with DAA and its anatomic location can complicate endovascular repair. Here, we describe the case of a 69-year-old patient who presented with Ortner syndrome caused by DAA, which was successfully treated using a solely endovascular approach and a standard stent graft.
