The introduction of percutaneous transluminal methods has widened and changed the therapeutic spectrum of vascular disease. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), transluminal catheter lysis, and thromboembolectomy have in many cases replaced the need for surgical therapy. The concept of transluminal vascular stenting (TVS) or grafting (TVG) is yet another step toward complementing or even supplanting surgery in the treatment of both obstructive and aneurysmal-vascular disease.
