Repair of thoracoabdominal aneurysm is associated with high morbidity and mortality. We describe a hybrid approach to repair a Crawford type III thoracoabdominal aneurysm with antegrade deployment of the endoluminal graft through a side limb of the bifurcated inflow conduit. The advantage of this technique includes avoidance of thoracotomy, left heat bypass, hypothermia, and aortic cross clamping.
