Therapy of brain- and limb-supplying vessels
Changes in the brain and limb vessels may cause stroke or dizziness. In addition, it may lead to functional disorders of limbs or AV (Arteriovenous) fistulae up to dialysis.
Limestone-induced constriction of the carotid leads is the reason for about 20% of all strokes. If the degree of the narrowing (stenosis) is more than 70%, it should be eliminated in order to prevent a stroke. In patients complaining about temporary paraesthesia or paralysis, there is a particularly high risk of a stroke.
An acute stroke must be immediately diagnosed and treated. 24 hours a day, all diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are available for you.
Depending on the location of the lesion and the type of vascular alteration, open surgical or minimally invasive procedures can be used. The procedure is chosen according to the individual needs of the patient in order to minimize the risk. The stent procedure is suitable for approximately 30% of the patients.
The diagnostic procedures are carried out on an outpatient basis using ultrasound, CT or MRI.
The therapy is carried out according to the current guideline of the medical and scientific expert association involved in the treatment and prevention of stroke.
