What is Open Surgery and treatment options?

  1. Options for blood vessel treatment often include: 

    • Patch angioplasty;

    • Vein (autogenous) bypass;

    • Man-made (prosthetic) bypass;

    • Endarterectomy

  2. Damaged arteries may be opened to remove plaque, while

    • widening the vessel with a patch (patch endarterectomy);

    • bypassing around the area of occluded or near-occluded blood vessel with vein (vein bypass)

    • use of a man-made tube to bypass around the area of occluded or near-occluded blood vessel

What are the benefits of Open Surgery?

  • Direct visualization  and repair of the damaged vessels

  • Less future interventions anticipated, compared to endovascular

  • Long-term durability, compared to endovascular
