Rupture of a thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) is usually lethal. Patients with contained ruptures, who reach the hospital, have traditionally been subjected to open reconstructive surgery. However, especially in older patients, open surgery has a high mortality and morbidity rate. Visceral hybrid procedures (VHPs) can provide an alternative in this high-risk patient group. We present a literature review of VHPs with a focus on acute TAAAs.
