Among recent developments in vascular surgical techniques is the use of surgical strategies in which different techniques are combined. Hybrid Vascular Procedures discusses those procedures including endovascular and open surgery, endovascular and laparoscopic surgery, robotic and laparoscopic surgery, and video-assisted procedures. The various chapters, written by international experts in the field, describe hybrid procedures in the supra-aortic trunks and cerebral arteries, in the thoracic aorta, the abdominal aorta, the lower limbs, and miscellaneous other procedures. These new technologies and their application will determine the future of vascular surgery.
