Because endovascular procedures represent an ever-increasing portion of many vascular surgery practices, many surgeons are faced with difficult choices. Endovascular procedures often require open surgery, and open surgical techniques increasingly require fluoroscopic imaging. Without good intraoperative imaging, endovascular procedures are difficult and endovascular aneurysm repair is impossible. How does one balance the need for optimal imaging without sacrificing the ability to safely perform… CONTINUE READING
