Treatment

Core competencies

  • Constriction of the pelvic and leg arteries (intermittent claudication), renal arteries (hypertension) and the neck arteries (strokes)
  • Diabetic foot and wound healing disorders on the leg and foot

  • Thrombosis and venous ulcers of the leg
  • Enlargement of the aortic and pelvic/leg arteries (aneurysm)
  • Vascular inflammation
  • Lymphoedema and lipoedema
  • Vascular malformations
  • Compression syndrome (entrapment, thoracic outlet/inlet)
  • Other rare vascular diseases (adventitia degeneration, tumours, etc.)
Vasoconstrictions/vascular occlusions

Treatment of vasoconstriction or vascular occlusion of the pelvic and leg arteries (intermittent claudication), the neck arteries (strokes) and the renal and visceral arteries (hypertension).
