Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm is a challenging disease that often requires an invasive surgical repair. Recently, a less invasive hybrid approach has been proposed to improve postoperative outcomes in high-risk patients. It consists of an open first stage where arterial visceral rerouting is obtained, using a vascular graft followed by a second stage where the remaining thoracoabdominal aorta is covered with a stent graft. Initial results using this approach seem promising. Here, we sought to describe the hybrid two-stage technique that is most frequently used in this extensive aortic pathology.
