VAD outpatient clinic

After discharge, our patients with a ventricular assist device (VAD) come to the outpatient clinic several times for check-ups. During the first three to four weeks, this is done once a week, then at longer intervals.

The following parameters are recorded during outpatient care:

  • Physical examination, especially Driveline, PM pocket, sternotomy scar, etc.
  • Resting ECG
  • Defibrillator check
  • Echocardiography
  • Laboratory test


The unit can be contacted during the day via the outpatient clinic number. The on-call service can be contacted outside regular service hours.

Please make an appointment by calling: +49 (0)5424 / 641-30912.
