Subclavian-carotid transposition under regional anaesthesia is safe and technically feasible if occlusion of the subclavian artery by thoracic stentgraft or stenosis has occurred. The technique employing regional anaesthesia can, therefore, also be offered to patients with increased risk for complications due to general anaesthesia.
