Traditional open repair of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms Crawford type II-IV carries a high perioperative risk and mortality. The hybrid technique for combined surgical and endovascular treatment offers an interesting alternative with reduced risk of paraparesis and possibly a reduced mortality rate. Propositions for refinement of this approach are outlined based on a single centre experience.
