A Standardized Approach To Access In Patients Requiring Complex Endovascular Aortic Therapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The increasing complexity of endovascular therapy for aortic pathology in the past few decades has been facilitated by improvements in access techniques and delivery systems. Successful vascular access management is a critical element to the safe and effective conduct of these procedures. In this editorial, we outline the principles of a standardized approach to vascular access. The basic approach involves: (I) preoperative planning, which incorporates clinical, imaging, and procedural considerations; (II) preoperative plan for potential or anticipated access-site complications; (III) intraoperative confirmation and reassessment; (IV) clear communication and team readiness for closure complications
