    Abstract

    Endoscopy of the vascular system has evolved over recent years from an experimental procedure to a sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic technique for surgical or percutaneous interventions of the peripheral vascular system. Particularly in procedures involving remote instrumentation of arteries, the angioscope provides a method of controlled guidance and a monitor of the effects of the various instruments on the vessel wall and allows immediate assessment of results. Angioscopic examination reveals the extent of intimal injury after angioplasty, in situ vein preparation, trauma, and thrombectomy and gives insights into the mechanisms and effects of endovascular devices.
