Abstract: ABSTRACT:Appropriate reoperation of the lower extremity artery may be required because of graft steosis, occlusion, and infecton. For high-rist patients who have no autogeneic vein available or who are not suitable for open reoperation, endoluminal plasty may be an alternative. The options of treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysm include traditional procedures and endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR).The reintervention rate is higher in EVAR than in traditional procedures. The options of treatment for recurrent carotid artery stenosis remain controversial. The advantages and disadvantages of carotid endarterectomy(CEA) and carotid artery stent(CAS) should be compared under comparable clinical situations.
