Endovascular Surgery

Re-establishing blood flow in a timely manner, along with advanced wound care, is essential in limb salvage efforts. Recent advances in endovascular techniques, which do not require open procedures, also make revascularization a possible option for many more patients, including the elderly or more frail patients.
