We report a case of a 72-year-old woman, who had an anastomotic pseudoaneurysm in the ascending aorta, successfully treated by endovascular aortic repair with vascular embolic devise and stent-graft. It seemed to be high risk to achieve conventional surgery with extracorporeal circulation, therefore we selected endovascular treatment because she had a bleeding tendency which derived from disseminated intravascular coagulation. Then, we adopted stent-grafting with a vascular embolic device, because the distal side of pseudoaneurysm had too short a landing zone to cover the stent-graft only. The patient well tolerated this procedure and her postoperative course was uneventful. The pseudoaneurysm shrank at 6th months after operation.
