The presence of a left aortic arch with an aberrant right subclavian artery is a well-described anatomic variant that rarely causes symptoms. When symptoms of dysphagia lusoria do occur, however, operative intervention may be necessary. The purpose of this report is to describe our preferred surgical approach to treat dysphagia lusoria secondary to an aberrant right subclavian artery.
