e.g. in peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAVK) with "shop window disease" (claudicatio intermittens), nocturnal rest pain, wound healing disorders, necrosis, Raynaud's phenomenon, varicose veins, swelling, venous thrombosis, lymphedema.
High-resolution ultrasound can be used to visualize the vessels and detect changes at an early stage.
Examination of the vessels using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT), which produces three-dimensional cross-sectional or slice images.
With the aid of contrast media, vascular changes can be made visible on ultrasound and, if necessary, treated directly.
Treatment procedures such as percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) to widen occluded or narrowed vessels.
Complex physical decongestive therapy (CPE)
Manual lymphatic drainage, compression therapy and exercise therapy for lymphedema
Do you suffer from varicose veins or spider veins? Together with the vascular surgery department, we offer a vein consultation.
For many angiological clinical pictures, there is close cooperation with other medical specialties such as radiology and vascular surgery, as well as with diabetes and wound consultation. Catheter interventions on the arteries are performed by a team from the interventional radiology department of the University Hospital Zurich at Männedorf Hospital.
