Since the introduction of endografts, treatment of vascular diseases has remarkably changed. Due to less surgical trauma patients--those were not amenable to open surgery--now have the chance to be treated with remarkably lower risk. At certain segments of the aorta with life important side branches combination of open surgery is needed to get free segment for deployment of endografts. These "hybrid" interventions have opened new horizon at aortic arch surgery without use of cardiopulmonary bypass and deep hypothermia. In selected types of diseases by debranching of the aortic arch and transposition of the supra-aortic trunks we can achieve suitable landing zones to fix the endografts properly. In this paper we provide an overview of the possible solutions.
