Contemporary vascular surgery relies on the progress in imaging techniques and on modern materials for vascular
substitutes. The collaboration with radiodiagnosticians enabled the treatment of arterial thromboses by means of
fibrinolysis.Radiodiagnostics plays an important role also in the field of endovascular operations, namely percutanous
transluminal angioplasty, insertion of stents, and recently in the abdominal aorta aneurysms treatment by means of
stents. Long-lasting effects of such operations, namely those in the aorta, have not been fully established and the
classical reconstructive surgery has not lost its importance.
