Therapy of acute vessel occlusions

Acute vascular occlusion is a surgical emergency and must be treated immediately. The most noticeable symptom is severe pain in the affected body region. This can affect the limbs as well as kidneys or the bowel / abdomen.

If possible, the treatment is performed by catheterization under local anesthesia. However in some cases, an operative procedure with the opening of the arteries is also necessary. The exhaust methods with anticoagulant medication or open surgical procedures are available around the clock.
