The author has worked out and been using a retroperitoneal minimal access to the aorta and iliac arteries, as well as a technique of a videoendoscopically assisted operation on these vessels using the retractor «KA 1» and a set of tools for laparoscopic interventions on the aorta manufactured by the «Karl Stortz» Company. The technical procedure of the operation is described. To this is added assessment of the outcomes of 37 reconstructive interventions in patients diagnosed with atherosclerotic lesions of the aorto-iliac-femoral segment. The proposed technique has proved to confer certain advantages over the conventional procedures employed.

KEY WORDS: retroperitoneal minimal access, retractor «KA 1», videoendoscopic reconstructive operations on the aorto-iliac-femoral segment.
