Management of symptomatic multifocal supra-aortic atherosclerotic disease presents a complex surgical challenge. We describe a novel approach where a temporary extra-corporeal femoro-carotid shunt was used to maintain cerebral perfusion during hybrid surgical and endovascular treatment for tandem supra-aortic lesions.
