A new device of aortic stent graft made in Japan has been available since July 2014. Here, we describe a novel, unique surgical technique named “less invasive quick open stenting” at a rectal temperature of 28°C without any cerebral perfusion for treating distal arch aneurysms. All 12 patients were discharged from the intensive care unit within 24 hours after surgery without any complications. This technique aids in the exclusion of atherosclerotic plaques on the aortic wall and shortens the duration of circulatory arrest; moreover, it represents a very attractive option to prevent recurrent nerve injury.
