A 50-year-old man was admitted because of enlargement in diameter of the descending thoracoabdominal aorta. Seven years previously, he had undergone Bentall operation and graft replacement of the aortic arch due to an acute dissecting aneurysm, and he had also received graft replacement of the descending aorta due to a rupture of dissecting aneurysm 2 years before. The surgical stress of conventional repair under left lateral thoracotomy and laparotomy was considered to be excessive, and the 3-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) image revealed the reconstruction of intercostals artery was difficult. Hence, extra-anatomic bypasses were created to perfuse the visceral and renal vessels, and endovascular thoracic stent-grafts were deployed into the false lumen, because of the severe narrowing of the true lumen( hybrid-procedure). The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged on postoperative 30 days. Hybrid-procedure of aortic aneurysm is feasible, and may be an alternative to standard open procedures in high-risk patients and emergency cases.
