The Comprehensive Aortic Program offers hybrid repairs for thoracoabdominal and aortic arch aneurysms. Hybrid operations are a combination of open and endovascular procedures. It is mostly used for repair of aortic arch and the thoracoabdominal aortic. This technique eliminates the need for cardiopulmonary bypass and aortic cross-clamp in many patients that are not candidates for classical endovascular procedures.
The hybrid technique may be a safer alternative to open surgery for some patients, making it an option for high-risk patients who cannot undergo conventional open surgery. It's especially suited to patients with other significant health problems or prior open aortic surgery.
MemorialCare Heart and Vascular Institute specializes in minimally invasive heart procedures. With these innovative techniques, patients benefit from fewer complications, less scarring, greater comfort and faster recoveries. Distinguished as a leading heart and vascular institute.
