The authors present a clinical case report and review of literature concerning treatment of extremely complicated pathology – thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm, also reflecting the most difficult problems and complications of classical surgical treatment.

A successful clinical example showed advantages of a new, less invasive approach, i.e., hybrid surgery. Based on analysing literature sources, the authors describe controversial points of carrying out a hybrid operation and its results.

Accumulating experience in and improving technology of the hybrid operation would make it possible to further improve therapeutic outcomes.

KEY WORDS: thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm, hybrid surgery.
