The authors share their experience gained in hybrid surgical interventions for multi-level steno-occlusive lesions of the aortoiliac and infrainguinal segments in a total of 96 patients presenting with chronic ischaemia of the lower limbs. The postoperative-period complications included haematomas observed in 9 (9.4%) cases and 6 (6.3%) instances of lymphorrhea occurring in the area of the postoperative wound. There were no lethal outcomes in the immediate postoperative period. The remote results were assessed at follow-up terms varying from 6 to 53 months in 75 (79.7%) patients. Thrombosis of the bypass graft was registered in 6 cases and thrombosis of the stented iliac segment was encountered in 3 cases, which required amputation of the lower limb in 5 (6.7%) patients.

KEY WORDS: hybrid operation, chronic lower-limb ischaemia.
