Acute vascular occlusion is a medical emergency and often a life threatening situation. It is caused by embolization
into local arteries, by thrombosis or by occlusion of peripheral arterial bypass grafts. Percutaneous thrombectomy and
local thrombolysis represent well established techniques for the treatment of acute limb ischemia and massive deep
venous thrombosis especially for ileofemoral and ileocaval occlusion. The new techniques of thrombectomy allow
very effective and minimally invasive therapy of acute vascular occlusions.
