Abstract

A 52-year-old Japanese man with thoracic esophageal cancer associated with the right aortic arch was admitted to our hospital. Preoperative spiral computed tomography and three-dimensional image reconstruction also showed an associated aberrant left subclavian artery. After preoperative concurrent chemoradiation, the patient underwent a subtotal esophagectomy with regional lymphadenectomy via a left thoracotomy.
