While the technique of subintimal dissection was described almost 2 decades ago, initial adoption of the technique was quite slow. Recently, a growing number of centers have embraced the technique as a valuable adjunct to standard endovascular and open revascularizations.

Fortunately, this is a trait that is common among vascular surgeons. Herein, we will describe the technique with focus on its limitations and advantages.
