Abstract

Aortoiliac and peripheral vascular disease that cannot be treated medically is generally treated by vascular surgeons and/or interventional radiologists. Advances in technology have allowed endovascular therapy to become a therapeutic option for atherosclerotic disease from the aorta to the femoropopliteal region. Distal peripheral disease is still approached surgically; however, further technological advances may lead to a more active role for endovascular therapy at this level.
