About the department

The chief physician of the Department of Vascular Medicine at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf is Prof. Dr. med. Eike Sebastian Debus. As the specialist in the field of visceral, vascular and general surgery, Prof. Dr. med. Eike Sebastian Debus specializes in general vascular surgery, open aortic reconstructions, bypass surgery of the carotid and peripheral arteries, venous reconstructions and endovascular surgery.

The Department of Vascular Medicine deals with the treatment of the entire spectrum of diseases of the vascular system. The Department follows a new innovative program: the specialists from different fields of surgical vascular medicine, interventional medical care and conservative therapy work together as a whole. A special focus is on sparing techniques performed without incisions but through natural orifices.

All patients undergo a detailed examination. This involves a comprehensive angiological diagnosis, including:

  • Color-coded duplex sonography of the whole vascular system
  • Moving walkway ergometry
  • Oscillography
  • Capillary microscopy
  • Angiography

Generally, the treatment of arterial and venous diseases can be conservative (medication), by means of catheter (interventionally) or by an open surgical technique. The decision on the technique is based on each individual situation with a due consideration of all data and only via an interdisciplinary approach.

  • Carotid artery stenosis in case of a possible or experienced stroke
  • Stenosis of the arteries that supply blood to the brain or arms (subclavian artery)
