A 23-year-old female with Turner syndrome and horse-shoe kidney underwent the operation of the coarctation of the aorta associated with the thoracic aortic aneurysm. The aortic aneurysm was located between the left carotid artery and the coarctation of the aorta, and the subclavian artery which was branched away from the aortic aneurysm was also aneurysmal. Aneurysmectomies and the reconstruction of the descending thoracic aorta and the left subclavian artery were performed with knitted Dacron grafts under assisting of the left atriodescending thoracic aortic bypass with Bio-pump. The disease was rare and such a case was not reported previously.
