However, the treatment of complex intracranial aneurysms using these technologies still entails great difficulties. Combined operation in the hybrid operating room integrates the advantages of operative and endovascular treatments and is expected to achieve better therapeutic effects. Materials and Methods: The data of 25 cases subjected to complex intracranial aneurysm surgery in the hybrid operating room from June 2011 to December 2012 were collected and analyzed. The cases subjected only to endovascular therapy were excluded. Results: Operations on the 25 cases were successfully completed with the efficient combination of various endovascular therapy technologies and craniotomy in the hybrid operating room. Among the cases, 80% of those with intracranial aneurysms recovered after the operation and were discharged. Five cases showed postoperative complications and were transferred into rehabilitation hospitals after their condition became stable. One patient voluntarily left the hospital. Conclusions: The hybrid operating room can provide simultaneous craniotomy clipping and endovascular therapy technologies, thereby achieving “one-off” treatment and providing new treatment options for complex intracranial aneurysms.
