Patients affected by critical limb ischemia (CLI) represent a complex and high risk clinical problem, and a multidisciplinary approach is often demanded. The amputation rate in patients affected by CLI is still high. Introduction of endovascular procedure shook up the CLI concept of treatment. The increasing experience of Vascular Surgeons in endovascular technique forced these specialist to match classic surgical skills and endovascular tools in order to achieve the best treatment for each patients. The combination of the two techniques identifies the hybrid procedure. Aim of this paper is to define indication, necessity and results of the hybrid procedure in patients suffering from CLI.
