We present two cases of concomitant management of a type I thoracoabdominal aneurysm and an infrarenal aneurysm via laparotomy, open infrarenal aortic replacement, visceral bypasses from the infrarenal graft, and finally endovascular exclusion of the thoracoabdominal aneurysm. While there are other reports of hybrid procedures for patients with preexisting aortic grafts in place or with retrograde visceral perfusion from a native iliac artery for type II thoracoabdominal aneurysm, these are the first reported cases of concurrent management of a type I thoracoabdominal aneurysm and an infrarenal aneurysm using the infrarenal graft as a distal landing zone for the thoracoabdominal endograft.
