Interruption of aorta in adult patients is an uncommon congenital vascular anomaly, because it requires a corrective operation in the pediatric age group. Three adult patients were operated on at our clinic for the long-interrupted segment of the aorta. Tube graft interposition in place of the interrupted segment of the isthmic aorta was performed in all patients. They had no residual gradient at the corrected segment. Bypass grafting is a safe and easy method for the treatment of interruption of the aorta in adult patients.
