The purpose of this study is to evaluate the preliminary safety and efficacy of the daVinci surgical system (computer-assisted surgery) for use in vascular surgery procedures. The daVinci Surgical System is FDA approved and widely used for surgical procedures for urology, cardiac, general, and gynecologic procedures. It is not currently approved specifically for use in vascular surgery. The investigators are seeking approval by the FDA to utilize the daVinci Surgical System in vascular surgery.
