Surgical endarterectomy has been considered the prefered technique for treating the common femoral artery (CFA). Although favorable endovascular treatment results of the CFA have recently become available, losing the groin area as an important acess site is still the major concern for this technique to become the golden standart. Nevertheless, the endovascular approach has shown, through several studies, including our experience, the capacity to establish itself as a complementery treatment for the modern vascular surgeon.
