Keywords: Aortic coarctation; descending aorta aneurysm; hybrid procedure; thoracic endovascular aortic repair
Aortic aneurysms are complex and difficult to treat conditions and are associated with high mortality rates. Alternative methods of treatment continues to show development day by day. One of them is the main subject of this article: the hybrid operation. Herein, we present the case of hybrid repair in a 37-year-old female with 56 mm descending aortic aneurysm and aortic coarctation Aortic debranching, carotid-to-subclavian bypass, and thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) operations were performed sequentially in this case. The follow-up computed tomography angiography demonstrated thrombus formation in the aneurysm lumen, no endoleak, and the aortic arch and bypass graft were all patent.
