Abstract
Ascending aortic pseudoaneurysm is a rare pathology that could have multiple etiologies such as thoracic<br>trauma, infection, and percutaneous or surgical procedures. In patients with aortic pseudoaneurysms,<br>open surgical or endovascular interventions are always indicated, if feasible and independent of size.<br>Several types of endovascular treatment have been reported in the literature, but they have been mostly<br>restricted to those cases when traditional surgery has a prohibitive risk. We report the case of a 75-year-<br>old man with a sinotubular junction pseudoaneurysm, likely developed after coronary artery bypass<br>grafting, which was successfully treated by implanting a multifenestrated cribriform septal occluder, a<br>device already used in few similar cases.
