Arterial occlusive disease involving the supra-aortic trunks (SATs) is relatively frequent. Its mere presence does not dictate the need for intervention. Revascularization options include intra and extrathoracic surgical bypasses and transpositions, and percutaneous endovascular approaches with angioplasty and stenting. This paper focuses on a description of the fundamental endovascular techniques and equipment that have proved useful in the senior author's (FJC) 15-year experience with catheter-based intervention for treatment of SAT disease. These procedures have gained in popularity over the years and become the preferred modality for management of most patients today.
