An aberrant right subclavian artery is a known arch variant with surgical intervention reserved for those patients presenting symptomatically, those with aneurysmal degeneration particularly of a Kommerell diverticulum, or those with adjacent aortic pathology. Varied surgical approaches have been described, often involving a supraclavicular approach in conjunction with a thoracotomy, or more recently, hybrid endovascular techniques. In the absence of aneurysmal degeneration or associated aortic pathology, surgical repair can be performed safely through a single supraclavicular incision. We present a case of a patient repaired in this fashion.
