Increased Durability, Safety and Effectiveness of Endovascular Prosthesis to Be Main Focus Adopted by Companies

October 24, 2011 11:29 am | by Prasanna Vadhana Kannan | Articles | Comments

Endovascular surgery, a form of minimally invasive surgery, is designed to access regions of the body through the major blood vessels. The basic technique involves the introduction of a catheter percutaneously (or through the skin) into a large blood vessel either through the femoral artery or vein found near the groin. The catheter is injected with a radio-opaque dye that can be seen on an X-ray or fluoroscopy imaging device. As the dye travels through the circulation, the real-time images seen by the radiologists assist in the diagnosis of diseases. Developments of intravascular balloons, stents and coils have allowed new therapies to evolve as alternatives to the traditional open surgeries.
