Peripheral arterial disease is an important health problem with an incidence of approximately 13 % in the population over 50 years of age. Although endovascular interventions provide successful results as sole treatment in many patients, in complex peripheral vascular disease cases concomitant surgical interventions may be necessary to provide complete revascularization of the target extremities.In this study, we aimed to present the early results of 21 patients who underwent hybrid peripheral vascular intervention


21 patients who underwent hybrid procedures for peripheral arterial disease between January 2018 and June 2018 were included in the study.One of the patients under went open surgery primarily and than endovascular intervention applied after 1 month to surgery. Endovascular and surgical procedures were performed simultaneously in all other patients.


Fifteen of the patients were male (71.4 %), and 6 were female (28.6 %). The mean age of patients was 61.95 ± 7.88 years, with an age range of 52-75 years.The average ankle-brakial index of the target extremity was 0.25 ± 0.12.


The hybrid procedures provide the best benefit possible for the complex arterial lesions with increase of both inflow and distal flow.
