A technique for anatomical positioning of a synthetic aortoaxillary bypass tube graft is described. A tunnel is created with the help of a Roberts clamp and intercostal tube drain. There is no need to open the pleura because the graft is tunneled parallel to the subclavian vessels outside the chest cavity.
