Vascular surgery has evolved considerably over the past 100 years from a specialty that offered patients only palliative procedures to treat significant vascular diseases to a field centered on the diagnosis and correction of vascular disorders. Aortic and peripheral artery aneurysms were once medical problems rarely diagnosed and frequently fatal. Diffuse, occlusive arterial disease secondary to atherosclerosis frequently resulted in limb gangrene or specific end-organ ischemia. Modern vascular therapy has dramatically reduced the incidence of primary limb amputations and significantly decreased the risk of fatal complication of arterial aneurysm rupture.
