Abstract

Introduction: Endovascular revascularization has become the preferred treatment for most patients with iliac artery obstructions, with a high rate of clinical and technical success.

Areas covered: This review will describe novel developments in the diagnosis and treatment of iliac artery obstructions including the augmentation of preprocedural imaging with advanced flow models, image fusion techniques, and state-of-the-art device-tracking capabilities.

Expert opinion: The combination of these developments will change the endovascular field within the next 5 years, allowing targeted iliac treatment without the need for radiographic imaging or iodinated contrast media.
