Abstract

Although the total number of procedures performed has remained relatively constant, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of endovascular procedures as well as an associated decline in the number of open procedures. This change in practice pattern has allowed the members of our division to maintain a significant role in the care of patients undergoing vascular surgery, as evidenced by stable overall procedural volume. This will provide a platform for future outcome-related analyses of open vs endovascular procedures performed within a single specialty group.
