Leg arterial occlusion – our treatment

In what is known as peripheral artery disease (PAD), constrictions occur in the arteries that impede the flow of blood and thus parts of your body are no longer supplied with sufficient oxygen. This leads to the typical symptom of peripheral artery disease, as you have to stop regularly due to pain in your legs. If you suffer from a significant restriction in your walking distance or even pain at rest or open wounds, correcting your vascular constriction is usually indicated. The choice of therapy (surgery or stent implantation) depends on the location and extent of the affected section of blood vessel. At Schoen Clinic Neustadt, specialists in cardiology and vascular surgery work together on an interdisciplinary basis in order to provide the optimum therapy for you in the event of an acute or even chronic leg arterial occlusion. Our experts have extensive professional experience in surgery of the leg arterial occlusion and other vascular occlusions.
