Intraprocedural Monitoring

The goals of intraprocedural monitoring during endovascular interventions include maintenance of patient safety and assurance of short-term and long-term success. Endovascular procedures by definition are carried out without direct operative exposure, and a form of monitoring, usually angiography, is a fundamental part of the procedure. The ideal monitoring technique is inexpensive, low risk, not cumbersome, and able to visualize ongoing progress to decrease morbidity and predict short-term and long-term failure. Postoperative surveillance has become standard practice in vascular surgery; intraoperative assessment is a basic part of the program to improve procedural outcomes.
