Why choose the Center for Vascular Diseases at Saint Anton

At Saint Anton we have created an area specialized in the care of cerebrovascular emergencies, with optimal times for accurate diagnosis and the application of the corresponding treatment to limit the damage caused by a stroke.

Acting quickly makes a difference.

Cerebrovascular disease is a MEDICAL EMERGENCY, for which URGENT treatment is vital. If attention is received quickly, the damage caused will be less. Most people suffering from cerebrovascular disease do not reach the Hospital quickly, which seriously increases the damage it causes and even puts life at risk.

Procedures we perform:

Carotid endarterectomy.- It is a surgery to remove plaque from an affected artery or blood vessel. A small incision is made in the vessel in question and the fat that causes the blockage is removed. The glass is repaired with a patch. This procedure can reduce the risk of ischemic stroke, but it also has risks, especially in patients with heart disease or other medical conditions.

Stents and angioplasties.- In an angioplasty, the carotid arteries (located in the neck) are accessed by inserting a catheter in the groin to take it to the affected area, where the artery is expanded by inflating and deflating a balloon in order to compress the plate sideways. A stent is then placed to maintain support in the artery that has just been opened.

Surgery may be used to repair the blood vessels that cause hemorrhagic stroke. One of the following procedures is used depending on the cause that caused the bleeding.

Surgical clipping.- A small clip is placed at the base of the aneurysm to prevent blood from flowing into it. This clip can prevent the aneurysm from rupturing causing rebleeding.

Endovascular embolization (coiling).- In this procedure, a catheter is inserted from the groin that is taken to the area damaged by an aneurysm (defect in a blood vessel that makes it prone to rupture); there it is repaired by placing a small spiral of soft metal, known as a coil that prevents the passage of blood to the aneurysm.

Surgical removal of arteriovenous malformations.- These malformations are defects of the vascular system that look like tangles of arteries, veins, and capillaries, which can rupture and cause new bleeding.

Gamma Knife Stereotaxic Radiosurgery.- At Saint Anton we have state-of-the-art equipment that can repair arteriovenous malformations and aneurysms using minimally invasive radiation.

cutting-edge technology

To determine the most appropriate treatment, the emergency team needs to assess what type of cerebrovascular disease it is (ischemic or hemorrhagic) and what areas of the brain are being affected. Other probable causes, such as brain tumors or allergic reactions to medications, must also be ruled out.

Several tests can be used for this purpose:

CT Scan.- A CT scan uses a series of X-rays to create a detailed image of the brain. In these you can see if there is bleeding, tumor, heart attack or other alterations. Contrast dye may be needed to clearly see the blood vessels in the neck and brain more accurately.

Cerebral angiogram.- It gives the Doctor an image of the state of the blood vessels that feed the brain, as well as detecting if there is an area with bleeding.

Skull tomography.- This study allows us to see if there is damaged tissue in the brain and what is its extension.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging.- MRI uses extremely powerful radio waves and magnets to create a detailed image of the brain. Detects brain tissue damaged by ischemia and hemorrhage.

Carotid ultrasound.- In this test, an ultrasound is used to look at the blood vessels in the neck and helps identify the presence of fatty deposits and other causes of narrowing of the blood vessels.

Cerebral angiography.- In this study, the Doctor inserts a very thin catheter in the groin and leads it to the carotid and vertebral arteries, where he injects a contrast medium to observe in detail the blood vessels of the neck and brain.

Echocardiogram.- The echocardiogram uses sound waves to create detailed images of the heart. This test can determine if the clots that caused the stroke originated in the heart.
