Remarkable technological advances in the past decade, along with patient preference, have shifted aortoiliac occlusive disease revascularization strategies from traditional open surgical approaches toward lower-morbidity                    percutaneous endovascular treatments. The availability of stents, more than any other advance, has fueled the growth of catheter-based procedures by improving the safety, durability, and predictability of endovascular techniques.
