The answer to this questions lies in the individual problems of the patient which must be carefully assessed before treatment can start. Diseases of the aorta include: aneurysm, dissection, rupture, perforated ulcer etc.. All of these are being treated at the renowned Vascular Center Berlin-Brandenburg Hubertus Hospital in Berlin. The Vascular Center is specialised in the treatment of the aorta. It lies in the interplay of many years of experience, the use of a hybrid OR, the use of minimally invasive surgery, a 24-hour emergency preparedness and the access to almost all stent grafts available in Germany. This ensures that the patient is always getting the stent graft best suited for his individual indication, situation and anatomy.

A highly modern hybrid operating room (with CT and 3D features) supplements the therapeutic options in the triple-certified vascular centre at Hubertus Hospital Berlin, which is part of the PGD International network. The hybrid OR enables doctors to combine extensive vascular operations with minimally invasive procedures.

Peter Jehle, talked about the dangers of high blood pressure and described how diseases such as heart attack, stroke, or kidney failure can be avoided by timely treatment.
