Abstract

Reimplantation of all intercostal arteries was performed with a T-shaped graft for spinal cord protection in a 64-year-old man who required long-segment replacement of the descending thoracic aorta. The T-shaped graft maintained blood flow to the intercostal arteries, and no neurologic deficits developed.
