A visceral patch aneurysm is a significant complication after extensive thoracoabdominal aneurysm repair, and open procedures to correct these lesions are associated with a high perioperative mortality. We report the case of a 6-cm visceral patch aneurysm occurring in a patient with a completely replaced descending and abdominal aorta that was successfully corrected by staged debranching and endovascular repair with a dedicated thoracic endograft. Hybrid procedures are a successful option to treat complex repairs in the reoperative setting. They have the potential to lower perioperative risk and enhance patient care.
