Supraclavicular transposition of aberrant left vertebral art
Background
Vertebral artery variations are common in thoracic aortic patients. If patients have the aberrant left vertebral artery, the more difficult to determine the treatment modality.

Case presentation
We report the case of a 63-year-old man with an aberrant left vertebral artery originating from an aneurysmal aortic arch. The patient underwent a successful hybrid thoracic endovascular aortic repair after aortic arch debranching and transposition of the aberrant left vertebral artery to the left common carotid artery through a supraclavicular incision without sternotomy.

Conclusions
The aberrant left vertebral artery originating from the aortic arch can be safely transposed to the left common carotid artery through a supraclavicular approach....
