Therapy of arterial occlusive disease
For the treatment of circulatory disorders of the visceral arteries, we offer both open and minimally invasive surgical therapies. Though narrowing of these arteries are rare, they can lead to consequential damages. For example, if intestinal arteries are affected, the food intake is also disturbed. If renal arteries are shrinked, this often leads to hypertension and decrease in renal function.
The arterial occlusion disease can be diagnosed by imaging techniques such as color coded duplex sonography (TCCS), magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) or digital subtraction angiography (DSA). As a rule, the treatment is performed using minimally invasive methids by means of a balloon catheter or a stent. If it does not lead to the restoration of the vessel, an open operation, e.g. the application of a bypass, is performed.
