The endovascular therapy; facts and fictions!

Abstract: The demographic development of the last 2 decades and the epidemiology of the Cardiovascular diseases have already created for the next 30 years of unalterable facts. The considerable increase of the intervention volumes and frequency which must be mastered by less and less therapists confronts the health system with huge challenge. Up to now our workflow is exclusively oriented on patients needs. Regarding the expected volume and frequency there are several therapist oriented aspects, that should be considered in a modern workflow.

Concerning the unchangeable facts the technical improvement and the integration in Screening, diagnostics and therapy procedure are the only opportunity to master this challenge.

The therapy of AAA has carried out a revolutionary development during the last years, and became the new standard therapy of the AAA. This is, primarily, of an achievement of the modern imaging diagnostics which has substantially changed at the same time the working terms. With the help of the today's workflow we will try to show the facts, Needs and Fictions.
