Story Check Complex venous malformations, e.g. with fistulas between the arterial and venous system, are quite a common sight in Dr. Thomas Hummel’s practice. He is the Senior Physician at Ruhr University Bochum’s Artery Center. He sees a clear connection between patient compliance and education.
- In cases of complex combined circulatory disorders, post-operative compression is the primary approach on the venous side.

- Vascular surgery benefits from the development of new, high-quality surgical systems that have to be supported with evidence.
