Dilatations of the artery, based on specific pathological forms, can be classified into artery dissection and aneurysm. Based on specific invasion sites, they can be classified into aortic dilatations and peripheral artery dilatations. Promoted by progress in devices and techniques, most dilatations of the artery can now be fixed by minimally invasive methods. The aim of endovascular treatment is to isolate dissection rupture or aneurysm and restore normal blood flow. This chapter mainly introduces clinical manifestations, surgical process, and intraoperative observation points of aortic dissection, abdominal aortic aneurysm, extracranial carotid artery aneurysm, renal artery aneurysm, splenic artery aneurysm, and iliac artery aneurysm.
