When it comes to the endocrinology, the department provides comprehensive and fastest diagnosis within the day hospital. Many endocrinological disorders are determined by functional tests, carried out in the own laboratory of the department. By using medications that inhibit or stimulate the production of hormones, these tests allow to make important observations regarding hormonal regulation of the patient. In particular, they are useful in diagnosing diseases of the pituitary gland, pituitary insufficiency, adrenal gland diseases or adrenocortical insufficiency.

Endocrinological priorities of the department include:

  • Thyroid gland diseases
    • Hypofunction of the thyroid gland
    • Hyperfunction of the thyroid gland
    • Basedow
    • Morbus Thyreoiditis Hashimoto
    • Nodules in the thyroid gland
    • Thyroid cancer
  • Diseases of the adrenal gland
    • Adrenal insufficiency
    • Adrenogenital syndrome
    • Tumors of the adrenal gland
    • Endocrine hypertension
    • Hirsutism
  • Pituitary diseases
    • Cushing's Syndrome
    • Acromegaly
    • Hormonal-inactive adenomas of the pituitary gland
    • Pituitary insufficiency
    • Craniopharyngioma
    • Prolactinoma

When it comes to angiology, along with providing accurate and rapid diagnosis, the key attention of the department is focused on designing individually tailored therapy, providing if necessary conservative treatment, catheter interventions and vascular surgery.

Angiology priorities of the department include:

  • Diabetic Foot Syndrome
  • Arteriosclerosis, as well as its consequences, such as:
    • Violations of the local circulation, for example, obliterating atherosclerosis of peripheral arteries
    • Nicotinic gangrene
    • Changes in arteries that supply blood to the brain in stroke or in condition with the stroke risk
    • Vessel dilations, primarily in the aorta (abdominal aortic aneurysm) or in the arteries of the legs
    • Suspicion of thrombosis in the veins of the lower extremities and pelvis
    • Pulmonary embolism
  • Open wounds (ulcers)
  • Phlebeurysm
  • Vascular inflammation, vascular tumors and abnormalities
  • Vasospastic diseases (for example, Raynaud's syndrome)
  • Edema (lymphedema, lipedema, etc.)
