Endovascular Procedures:

  • Angiography of the arterial and venous system including intracranial angiography
  • Abdominal and thoracic aorta endovascular repair in the case of an aneurysm, an aortic rupture or a symptomatic aortic dissection.
  • Angioplasty or stenting / stent – transplantation of peripheral arteries in the case of Peripheral Arterial Disease or peripheral aneurysms.
  • Endovascular Revascularisation of Below-the-Knee arteries in the case of critical limb ischemia and diabetic foot.
  • Intra-arterial thrombolysis and mechanical thrombectomy in the peripheral arteries or the venous system in the event of acute thrombosis.
  • Angioplasty and stent placement in the carotid artery, the spinal artery as well as other arteries.
  • Obstruction, angioplasty and stent placement in the renal and visceral arteries.
  • Denervation of the renal arteries in case of chronic arterial hypertension.
  • Surgical Reconstruction / fistula / implanted graft hemodialysis in the event of significantly narrowed arteries or acute thrombosis.
  • Treatment of the Superior Vena Cava Syndrome / angioplasty or vascular stent placement in the event of stenosis or obstruction.
  • Different types of embolization, including renal, gastrointestinal and post-traumatic arterial bleeding.
  • Mechanical / Chemical thrombolysis for acute pulmonary embolism.
  • Embolization of visceral artery aneurysms using stent and coils.
  • Embolization of congenital vascular malformations or other vascular abnormalities.
  • Inferior vena cava filter placement and removal.
  • Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPSS) in case of chronic liver disease, bleeding and high blood pressure in the portal vein or refractory ascites.
  • Extraction of foreign fragments from the heart and the large blood vessels with a diaphanoscope.

Interventional Oncology:
