The surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) remains one of the most technically demanding surgical procedures in vascular surgery. High-volume centers still have significant morbidity and mortality rates of 12%–15%. Emergence of thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) improved these figures but was limited by the availability of customized grafts and cost factors. An effective alternative approach hence is a hybrid procedure that involves the combination of open technique for debranching of viscerorenal aorta and use of standard TEVAR stent graft to cover aneurysmal segment. We report a case of an elderly male who underwent a successful staged Hybrid TEVAR procedure for Type 3 equivalent TAAA.
