Abstract

Aberrant right subclavian artery is the most common brachiocephalic artery congenital abnormality and may result in dysphagia from external compression by the aberrant artery on the esophagus. Repair of this anatomic variant can be performed by both open and hybrid endovascular techniques. This case illustrates a complication of a hybrid repair resulting in proximal migration of a vascular occlusion plug, presenting as recurrent dysphagia and need for open surgical extraction of the plug.
