DEPARTMENT OF DIGITAL SUBTRACTION ANGIOGRAPHY

Scientific Manager: Theodoros Stefanopoulos

The Athens Bioclinic is equipped with one of the best digital subtraction angiography systems in Greece. With the staff’s specialised knowledge, the lab performs with absolute accuracy and success all diagnostic and interventional treatments of vascular conditions, such as:

  • Diagnostic digital subtraction angiographies
  • Angioplasties and stent placements in stenoses or peripheral artery and vein occlusions.
  • Repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms by using endovascular grafts
  • Embolisations of aneurysms and arterial and venous malformations
  • Venographies and catheterisations
  • Placement of ports and filters in the inferior vena cava
  • Thrombolysis of visceral and peripheral arteries and veins
  • Highly-selective chemo-embolisations
  • Nephrostomies
  • Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiographies

Vascular imaging is of particularly high diagnostic value and greater accuracy in comparison with other imaging examinations.

During the examination, if reversible vascular damage is found, therapeutic interventions can also be used, e.g. by balloon angioplasty or stents, at the same time, without the need of a new paracentesis.

This method is relatively non-risky and is performed by specialised staff.

The length of stay at the hospital is usually one day only, and the pain caused by the catheterisation is negligible.

In our hospital over the last decade no serious complication has occurred while performing hundreds of diagnostic examinations and interventions using digital subtraction angiography; on the contrary, absolute success and high-quality diagnostic or therapeutic results have been attained.

Diagnostic examinations are approved by EOPYY, which is affiliated with the hospital.
