  • Description: Form 2008 to 2009, four patients with complex thoracic aortic disease, including aortic aneurysms and dissections, were successfully treated in our department with a new treatment approach: hybrid procedure. Combined open surgery and endovascular repair were performed in these patients without deep hypothermia or circulatory arrest. Compared to those who underwent traditional open surgery in the same period, time of mechanical ventilation and ICU stay was decreased in these four patients. All of them were discharged soon after operation without postoperative complications or death. The result suggests that this new approach could be an option for thoracic aortic disease, but long-term and large-population studies are still required to demonstrate the safety and validity.
