Background: Hybrid endovascular and open reconstructions are used increasingly often for multilevel revascularization for lower limb ischaemia. The aim was to evaluate outcomes after such procedures in a single-center non-randomized retrospective study. Patients and methods: Consecutive patients with multilevel arterial disease who underwent single session hybrid procedures were analyzed depending on the type of ischaemia and the type of revascularization. Results: 164 patients were included with a median follow up time of 14 months (range: 0 - 70). Indication was claudication (group 1, 47 %), critical limb ischaemia (group 2, 33 %) and acute limb ischaemia (group 3, 20 %). Technical success rate was 99.3%, perioperative mortality 2%. Primary, assisted-primary and secondary patency rates at one year were 60%, 61% and 64%, respectively. Primary, primary assisted and secondary patency were lower in group 2 and 3 compared to group 1 (all p < 0.05). Results were better when endovascular repairs were performed above compared to below the open repair site (all p < 0.05). Limb salvage at 1 year in groups 1 - 3 were 98%, 92% and 90%, respectively. The risk of major amputation was highest in group 3 compared to group 1 (p = 0.001) or group 2 (p < 0.04). Conclusions: The results depend on the type of ischaemia and the localization of endovascular procedures.
