The endovascular era began about 20 years ago and subsequently revolutionized vascular surgery as a less invasive treatment option, especially for high risk patients. In the late 1990s, a new hybrid approach for arch and thoracoabdominal pathologies was developed. Debranching and rerouting supra-aortic and visceral aortic branches with extra-anatomic bypass grafting was performed in order to achieve sufficient landing zones demanding for subsequent stent grafting. The initial single-center results of small series up to 20 patients were encouraging with acceptable complication rates. Hybrid arch procedures are feasible but seem to carry risks. However, the latest reports for thoracoabdominal hybrid procedures demand a word of caution due to high morbidity rates. The hybrid approach may be reserved for a selected comorbid patient cohort, which is regarded unfit for open reconstruction.
