HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Compared with open surgery, endovascular popliteal artery aneurysm repair was associated with lower patency but fewer complications, according to results of a retrospective single-center study presented at the International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy.
Researchers evaluated all patients who underwent popliteal artery aneurysm repair with an endovascular graft (Viabahn, W.L. Gore) or reverse saphenous vein grafting at the Cleveland VA hospital between 2000 and 2012.
