The anesthesia for descending aortic surgery presented problems involving large hemodynamic alterations during thoracic aortic cross-clamping, protection of the heart and brain from large increases in pressure occuring above the cross clamp, and prevention of spinal cord and renal ischemic damage below the cross-clamp. One lung ventilation was also employed with this anesthetic technique. A 23 years old male patient with traumatic aneurysm of descending thoracic aorta was treated successfully.
