Which graft material is the optimal graft material for the treatment of aortic graft infections is still a matter of controversy. We used a branched xenopericardial roll graft to replace an infected aortic arch graft as a “rescue” operation. The patient is alive and well 37 months postoperatively without recurrence of the infection and any surgical complication. This procedure may have the possibility to serve as an option for the treatment of aortic arch graft infection.
