Purpose of Review: This review discusses the trends in management of vascular trauma comparing open management with endovascular strategies. Recent Findings: Endovascular vascular approaches to vascular trauma has evolved significantly in the past several decades, providing an option for reduced morbidity and mortality in the carefully selected trauma patient. While open surgery is a critical skill to maintain, there are strategies more than ever before that can be applied to a hemorrhaging trauma patient which include stent-graft placement, the use of temporary vascular shunts, and vascular balloon occlusion. Summary: Vascular trauma management has evolved over the last several decades, introducing promising endovascular treatment strategies, particularly in junctional and torso hemorrhage.
