Internal jugular vein saccular aneurysms are rare. Surgical management is indicated when there is a risk of rupture. We recommend a hybrid procedure combining endovascular and open techniques. We report the case of a 77-year-old female patient with a saccular aneurysm of the internal jugular vein, which was excised with combined endovascular and vascular techniques.
