Vascular Ehlers-Danlos (VED) represents a rare disorder in which a defect in collagen synthesis renders vessels to be extremely fragile. We report the successful repair of a subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm via a hybrid technique employing delivery of a covered stent along with video-assisted thoracoscopic ligation of the internal mammary artery in a patient with VED.
