About the department keyboard_arrow_down

With a team of eight doctors, as well as qualified and committed nursing staff, the Department of Vascular Surgery at the Luisenhospital Aachen under the direction of Dr. med. Ulrich Radtke treats all vascular diseases. The outpatient Surgery Center performs minor surgery, while the treatment of arteries requires an inpatient stay. Intensive medical care is provided to the patients at risk or after major surgical interventions.

Among the main focuses of the Department of Vascular Surgery are operations on the carotid artery. The Luisenhospital Aachen performs surgery on the narrowed arteries (and arteries that are at risk of blockage) in the neck and spine. This prevents strokes and in some cases doctors place a mesh through the groin (stent implantation). 

Another focus of the Department under the direction of Dr. med. Ulrich Radtke is placed on the operations on the abdominal artery (aorta). The surgery on dilated arteries and arteries with calciferous deposits (aortic aneurysm) suggests the placement of tubular prostheses or Y-prostheses. These operations can be performed either “classically” (through an incision in the abdominal area) or endovascularly (the surgeon makes a small incision in the groin and places a mesh into the aneurysm by means of a catheter; this mesh will be later expanded and stretched by a balloon (aortic stent)). 

The spectrum of medical services covers the entire range of bypass surgery (initial stent implantation, revision, insertion of catheters, balloon catheter expansion of the constrictions (shunt angioplasty) and surgical emergency. The Department provides specialized consultations on bypass surgery, which involve pre- and post-operative examinations, as well as a 24-hour emergency service. All examinations and interventions are carried out in close cooperation with the cooperating Dialysis Practices, Anesthesiology, Radiology and the Department of Medicine at the Luisenhospital Aachen. 

An important focus is placed on the treatment of varicose veins and vein thrombosis on the legs (mostly on an outpatient basis), as well as sclerotherapy for varicose veins. For the treatment of vein thrombosis on the legs specialists use all available treatment options ranging from the reduction of blood clotting with heparin, the dissolution of thrombi with medicines (lysis) up to the surgical removal of thrombi. Trophic ulcers of the lower leg (Ulcera cruris) require partial hospitalization, during which doctors can provide both differential diagnosis and intensive treatment.
