Hybrid thoracoabdominal repair is a useful aneurysm repair method for specific patients who would not tolerate a standard open surgical repair. A 60-year-old male patient presented with previous thoracoabdominal repair and subsequent mesenteric patch aneurismal dilation. This video details the use of thoracic endovascular stent grafting, as well as abdominal mesenteric and renal debranching, for which the authors used both standard surgical bypass and the Viabahn open revascularization technique (VORTEC).
