Diagnostis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases has improved considerably in recent years. Old methods were refined, and new methods are implemented successfully. Thus, the bottlenecks or blockages in the leg arteries can be expanded partially using a catheter without surgical intervention. Vascular surgery in Erlangen offers this sparing treatment method with great success. It uses the whole interdisciplinary spectrum of modern medicine at Erlangen University Clinic.

In the surgical department of vascular medicine, the team treats the full range of vascular system disorders. Experts in operational vascular surgery, interventional and medical therapy work together as a unit. The priorities in treatment of cardiovascular diseases are surgical treatment of the neck artery narrowing (carotid stenosis), operative or endovascular exclusion of the bag-shaped abdominal aorta protrusion (aneurysm) and treatment of arterial occlusive disease of the pelvic and leg arteries (obliterate atherosclerosis of peripheral arteries). Besides, the clinic treats patients with venous complaints. Even rare diseases, such as malformations, are among the priorities.

Particular attention of the vascular surgery is paid to bypass system and overlapping of extended vascular changes. Often, the leg amputation can be avoided upon these seemingly hopeless circulatory disorders.
