A 62-year-old man with past history of chronic atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure, and pneumonia was referred to our hospital for further workup of pulmonary sequestration. Enhanced computed tomography revealed intralobar pulmonary sequestration (IPS) of the lower left lobe, as well as aortic aneurysmal dilation at the origin of the aberrant feeding artery. We performed a hybrid operation consisting of thoracic endovascular aortic repair and excision of the IPS and left lower lobe by video-assisted thoracic surgery. The patient was discharged 5 days later without complications.
