The surgical approach to a large pseudoaneurysm of the brachiocephalic trunk may be hazardous because of its high risk of rupture. An adequate vascular control is vital before attempting to manage the pseudoaneurysm. We describe a surgical technique using deep hypothermic circulatory arrest to repair a giant pseudoaneurysm of the brachiocephalic trunk with impending rupture and severe respiratory distress and superior vena cava compression secondary to multisystem trauma. doi: 10.1111/jocs.12117 (J Card Surg 2013;28:430–432)
