The field of peripheral vascular disease (PVD) management is rapidly evolving with the advent of new endovascular techniques. These new techniques frequently involve hybrid approaches for treating complex aortic pathologies. Like many new procedures, endovascular techniques present new challenges for physicians who care for patients with complex vascular pathologies. Physicians must not only understand the disease entity, but the knowledge, expertise in and all available therapeutic options, including the new techniques being employed. To enable physicians to meet these requirements for endovascular techniques and stent-graft technology and to become credentialed to perform them, specific training requirements must be established for peripheral vascular training programs. This is a literature-based review discussing the development of interventional vascular training programs and the incorporation of catheter-based endovascular techniques.
