Vascular surgery

Our vascular centre at Skåne University Hospital is a major award-winning referral centre with world-renowned experts. The centre leads methodology development for endovascular techniques, particularly for complex aortic aneurysm.

The vascular centre is a European centre of excellence for the treatment of hypertension, including arterial disease.

As a leading entity in methodology development, the centre pioneered endovascular aortic repair with the first implant in 1993. The development of fenestrated and branched stentgrafts for treatment of complex aortic aneurysm started over a decade ago and the centre is involved in on going trials of endovascular arch repair and thoracoabdominal repair.
