We present a short case of a total endovascular repair of a ruptured thoracic pseudoaneurysm after previous coarctation aortic conduit bypass surgery. A 67-year-old man with two previous coarctation repairs many years ago was admitted with chest pain, dyspnea, and hemoptysis. Computed tomography showed a rupture in the distal anastomosis of the thoracic extra-anatomic graft. Successful treatment was achieved by placement of an endovascular stent graft between the old graft and the native aorta and with a vascular plug occlusion of the native aorta.
