Cabrol in 1981, described the creation of an aorto-right atrial fistula to control oozing from the prosthetic graft that is used to replace the ascending aorta/root in a mix of aneurysmal or dissected aortic pathology. This was performed by sewing the aneurysmal native aorta around the prosthetic graft and then connecting it to the right atrium. Since then, several modifications have been done in the original Cabrol concept. We present in the current case an alternate option to the peri-graft to innominate vein/right atrial connection that could be beneficial in difficult situations where the original or Modified Cabrol version is not feasible.
