Pediatric thoracic aortic aneurysms are rare but potentially life-threatening. We present the anaesthetic management of thoracic descending aortic surgery without CPB in two paediatric patients. The rare cases firstly highlight the use of endobronchial blocker enabled good exposure of the operative field and anaesthetic experiences during the thoracic descending aortic surgery without CPB in children, which require meticulous perioperative management to limit morbidity and mortality.
