A hybrid approach using a composite endovascular and open graft procedure for a symptomatic common femoral aneurysm extending well above the inguinal ligament.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We report the use of a unique hybrid technique to treat a patient with a painful aneurysm extending both above and below the inguinal ligament. The patient was at high surgical risk, and endovascular treatment was not possible due to the absence of an appropriate vascular access site. Under local anesthesia, this aneurysm was treated using both a stent graft and a traditional Dacron graft for the iliac and femoral portions, respectively. Simultaneously, a popliteal aneurysm was treated endovascularly through a jump graft, which was used to bypass a short occlusion at the origin of the superficial femoral artery. Hybrid techniques can be an alternative approach in high-risk patients where endovascular procedures cannot be applied.
