Aortic aneurysm – our treatment

The treatment of aortic aneurysms has been a speciality of our vascular centre in Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth for 25 years. Our experienced team of experts looks after around 70 patients annually. This makes us one of the leading locations in Upper Bavaria.

We rely on the latest technologies, gentle processes and interdisciplinary cooperation with our specialists in the fields of cardiac surgery, anaesthesia and intensive care. They work hand in hand to provide you with holistic and long-term care for an aortic aneurysm – from early detection and treatment, including surgery, to the organisation of a suitable rehab and the necessary aftercare.

A size of over five centimetres, strong pain or rapid size growth are usually the indications for surgery on your aneurysm. We use minimally invasive catheter procedures (endovascular interventions with implantation of stent prostheses) that are particularly low-risk and gentle for you. If surgery planning shows that this procedure is not best suited, we perform a classic open surgery of your aortic aneurysm, which has been standard in our vascular centre for decades.

Consultation hours for aortic treatment at Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth

Use our aortic consultation hours

Since they usually cause no symptoms for a long time, aneurysms are often discovered by chance during an ultrasound examination – or in the worst case, only when they tear down and there is a risk to life. We recommend that you have a check-up with your family doctor, internist or cardiologist from the age of 60. Since last year, the screening has been adopted by the health insurance companies as a standard benefit. If abnormalities are found during the orienting ultrasound examination, we offer you additional examinations in our special aortic consultation as well as setting further measures. The appointments for this take about 30 minutes.
