Minimally Invasive Vascular Surgery
During the past several decades, the operative mortality rate for elective repair of aortic aneurysms has markedly decreased, declining from 21% in surgical series carried out in the 1950s to under 5% as reported in modern studies [1–5]. Lower extremity occlusive disease with ischemic tissue loss, which once mandated limb amputation, can now be treated with either interventional techniques or bypass surgery, resulting in favorable limb salvage rates . Finally, despite advances in intensive care and resuscitation, severe, acute arterial injury from penetrating or blunt vascular trauma has remained a challenging problem, especially when central vascular injuries of the aor-toiliac or subclavian arteries are involved [7–9].
