The last decade has borne witness to a transformation in the care of patients with vascular disease. There has been a rapid transition towards minimally invasive techniques as interventionalists obtain increasingly advanced catheter-based skills and access to newer and more sophisticated devices. Patients who are not candidates for completely percutaneous revascularization, or those felt to be at prohibitive risk for traditional surgical reconstruction, may benefit from hybrid therapy, a combination of open surgery and endovascular repair that offers patients the opportunity for complete revascularization with decreased morbidity and mortality. This review examines applications of hybrid procedures for treating patients with disabling claudication and limb-threatening ischemia, aortic arch disease, thoracoabdominal aneurysms, extra-cranial carotid disease, and coronary artery disease.
