Interventional Radiology procedures, equipment and techniques as well as image guidance have developed dramatically over the last few decades. The evidence for minimally invasive interventions in vascular and oncology fields is rapidly growing and several procedures are considered the first line management. However, radiation exposure, image guidance and innovative solutions to known anatomical challenges are still lagging behind. Robotic technology and its role in surgery have been developing at a steady speed. Endovascular robotics are following suit with a different set of problems and targets. This article discusses the advances and limitations in one aspects of endovascular robotic, namely pelvic pathology that includes aneurysms, fibroids, benign prostatic hypertrophy and vascular malformation.


KEY WORDS: Endovascular - Embolisation - Robot - Interventional Radiology - Image guided intervention
