Interventional treatments at a glance

Interventional treatments at a glance

Due to the ever evolving technological progress, medicine is now able to treat various medical conditions with little risk in minimal-invasive techniques.

Using modern imaging technology numerous oncological, vascular and neurovascular therapies can now be performed without general anesthesia – and without classical surgical intervention. Our Departement of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology is specialized in the treatment of the following diseases:


  • Treatment and Recanalization of the vessels of the pelvis and legs (PAOD, peripheral arterial occlusive disease)
  • Vasodilation and Recanalization of the vessels supplying the brain Neuroradiology
  • Vasodilation and Recanalization of the renal arteries

Treatment of vascular bulging (aneurysms)

  • Treatment of the brain vessels » Neuroradiology
  • Treatment of the vessels of the trunk and extremities
  • Treatment of the thoracic and abdominal aorta (Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) and endovascular aortic repair (EVAR)  (in cooperation with the Clinic for Vascular Medicine)

Treatment of malignant tumours and metastases

  • Radiotherapy of malignant tumours from the inside (brachytherapy)
  • Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) or selective internal radioembolization therapy (SIRT) of liver tumors » SIRT
  • Treatment of tumours of the lung and liver by percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or microwave ablation (MWA) or of the pancreas by irreversible electroporation (IRE)

Other minimally invasive procedures

  • Placement of a shunt (transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt, TIPS) for the treatment of portal hypertension and variceal bleeding in liver cirrhosis
  • Minimally invasive placement / recanalization of a hemodialysis shunts
  • Pain therapy, e.g. periradicular therapy (PRT) by image guided drug injections directly to the irritated nerve roots of cervical or lumbar spine
