We live at a time where open vascular operations have been largely replaced by percutaneous minimally invasive procedures (also called endovascular).

Vascular patients should consult vascular surgeons with expertise in both endovascular and open procedures in order to receive the most appropriate treatment.

Minimally invasive vascular procedures reach utmost safety and success if they are performed in state of the art hybrid operating rooms with the use of high quality endovascular devices.
