Johannes Lammer’s abstract on occlusive vascular diseases of the abdomen divides arterial occlusive disease into acute and chronic occlusions and summarizes the etiologies, clinical manifestations, imaging diagnosis and treatment of these conditions. Additionally, the most frequent and important manifestations of venous occlusive disease in the inferior vena cava, its branches as well as in the portal venous system and in the hepatic veins are summarized.
