The minimally invasive, endovascular therapy is a treatment option for vascular diseases or tumors inside the vessels. During this kind of surgery, vessel dilating balloons, stents or special glues are used. The affected vessels should be dilated permanently or damaged vessels should be glued in order to ensure a sufficient blood circulation and prevent bleedings.
The main advantage of the endovascular surgery of brain vessels, for example, is that you do not need a new access to the vessel created by a cut or by drilling a hole in the skull, but you can use existing blood vessels for accessing the vessel to be treated. This enables us to avoid large cuts, drilling bones or create big scars. Endovascular surgery is easy on the body and bears a reduced risk of infections in comparison to open surgery. This makes short hospitalization, short recreation periods and quick return to occupational or sports activities possible.
