This paper provides a summary of up-to-date information and experience with the combined treatment of patients suffering from peripheral arterial disease (PAD) with endovascular and open surgery, performed simultaneously and in a single operating room. Hybrid intervention is reported to have good results in well-indicated groups of patients with acute and chronic limb ischemia, even with older, high-risk patients. The indications for the use of this technique remain unclear with inconsistent opinions among vascular surgeons. The indications for treat-ment were divided into three main groups: 1) Patients with chronic limb ischemia, 2) acute limb ischemia, and 3) occlusion of a previous vascular reconstruction. The operating techniques for the most commonly used combinations are described. In conclusion, hybrid operating techniques are often useful when treating complex problems and multilevel disease in patients with chronic or acute lower limb ischemia. Modern vascular surgeons need to master both open and endovascular techniques, and to combine them in a creative fashion to the benefit of our patients.
