Hybrid Treatments

Hybrid Operations

The Aortic Program offers hybrid repairs, which is a combination of open and endovascular procedures.  This procedure  is mostly used for repair of aortic arch and the thoracoabdominal aortic.

The hybrid technique eliminates the need for cardiopulmonary bypass and aortic cross-clamp in many patients which may make it a safer option for high-risk patients who cannot undergo conventional open surgery. It is especially suited to patients with other significant health problems or a history of prior open aortic surgery.
