Abstract

Endovascular surgery is the vascular equivalent of minimally invasive surgery. It offers the benefits of minimal morbidity and mortality rates as well as short hospital stay, with its associated cost curtailment. In spite of many technological innovations, only balloon dilatation and intravascular stenting have established their places in vascular surgery with the newer field of stent grafting for both occlusive and aneurysmal disease still being evaluated.
