Comprehensive examination for early detection of vascular changes and vascular diseases, with in-depth preventive health advice.
It is still one of the widely held beliefs that strokes occur suddenly and unexpectedly. However, strokes do not develop in minutes, but rather take decades to develop. The most common causes of strokes are high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis. Deposits cause the normally elastic vessel wall to become increasingly rigid, and the smooth inner wall of the vessels to become rough. If the deposits grow, the vessel narrows more and more. Blood clots can form there, which are washed into smaller brain arteries and can block them. Ultimately, this can lead to a stroke.
It is crucial to detect atherosclerosis as early as possible. Regular preventive examinations are therefore particularly important for patients at risk. If changes are detected early, you can keep your vessels elastic and flexible with suitable preventive measures and thus significantly reduce your risk of stroke.
The stroke check performed in our practice provides you with reliable information about the condition of your vascular pathways. In a detailed preliminary consultation, your current complaints, previous illnesses and family risk factors are recorded. The ultrasound examination covers the vessels that supply the brain. Special laboratory tests complete the overall picture. Finally, your personal risk profile is drawn up and your doctor informs you about the preventive measures you can take to reduce your risk of stroke.
Our practice team is always available to answer any further questions you may have.
