- Recommendation ID
- NICE encourages research into endovascular stentgrafting of popliteal aneurysms and may review this procedure on publication of further evidence.
- Any explanatory notes
- Current evidence on endovascular stent-grafting of popliteal aneurysms is limited in quantity but shows no major safety concerns. Evidence on efficacy is inadequate because it is limited to the short-term. Therefore this procedure should only be used with special arrangements for clinical governance, consent and audit or research.
