Special Clinical Focus

  • Open and stent-aided treatment of aortic aneurysms
  • Reconstructive surgery on the supra-aortic vessels and the carotid arteries
  • Open and endovascular treatment of PAOD and acute circulatory disorders of the arms and legs
  • All therapeutic options for varicosities and venous thromboses (stripping, foam sclerotherapy, VNUS, thrombectomy, thrombolysis, etc.)
  • Pre-dialysis / pre-peritoneal dialysis shunt surgery
  • Intra-operative rotational angiography, CT angiography and catheter navigation in a high-tech hybrid operating theatre with reduced X-radiation for patients and physicians

About us

The Vascular and Endovascular Surgical Clinic and Polyclinic have served patients with acute and chronic vascular diseases for over 35 years. Here, catheter techniques, classic vascular procedures and combinations of open surgical and endovascular techniques are employed. The therapeutic emphases are the dilatation of the aorta (aortic aneurysm), strictures of the carotid arteries (carotid stenoses), circulatory disorders in the region of the vessels in the pelvis and leg (arterial occlusive disease), the insertion of AV shunts for dialysis patients and the treatment of varicosities (varicosis). The procedures are performed in an operating theatre equipped with the most up to date technology, a so-called “hybrid theatre”, which provides the physicians with full flexibility in selecting the treatment.

We place particular emphasis on intensive interdisciplinary collaboration. To this end, the Interdisciplinary Centre for Vascular Diseases (IZG) was founded at the Rechts der Isar Hospital over 10 years ago. Vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, angiologists, neurologists, nephrologists and diabetologists work closely together at this Centre in order to be able to provide our patients with optimum diagnostics and treatment.

In addition, the Munich Aorta Centre (MAC) of the University of Technology, Munich, was opened together with the Cardiac Surgery Clinic of the German Cardiac Centre in 2011. Alongside vascular and cardiac surgery, the respective institutes and clinics of anaesthetics, radiology, cardiology and nephrology work together at both sites of this Centre. Continuous advanced training of the doctors is crucial in order to be able to guarantee the patients the best possible treatment. For this reason, weekly specialists’ meetings take place in the Munich Aorta Centre, to discuss the treatments and surgical techniques to be utilised. In addition, there is an exchange of physicians between the two partner institutions and joint advanced training events, specialist conferences and joint clinical and principle-based research projects take place. A special consultation (“Aorta Clinic”) has been established at the Vascular and Endovascular Surgical Clinic and Polyclinic at the Rechts der Isar Hospital for patients with aortic conditions.

In order to be able to treat further clinical pictures in a targeted fashion, there are also special consultations for diseases of the aorta, for coagulation therapy, renal replacement therapy for dialysis and varicoses.
