Abstract

Various endovascular techniques, including the placement of embolization coils, intravascular stents, and the use of stented grafts, have been used in the setting of traumatic upper extremity injuries. Coil embolization and stent placement are effective in a limited number of cases. Endovascular grafts have greatly extended the potential of endovascular therapy for upper extremity vascular trauma. The ideal graft material, stent, and the best mechanism for stent deployment have not been determined. In addition, long- term effectiveness of such therapy is yet to be shown. Nevertheless, endovascular grafts offer distinctive advantages in some cases and are important tools for the treatment of vascular trauma and should be included in the armamentarium of all vascular surgeons.
