Diagnostics and treatment range

State-of-the-art diagnostic facilities and patient-friendly therapeutic approaches are the hallmark of the cardiology department at the Schüchtermann-Klinik. Every year we treat more than 5,000 patients.

DIAGNOSTIC CATHETER AND X-RAY PROCEDURES
  • Coronary angiography
  • Guide wire method (FFR)
  • Catheter infiltration
  • Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)
  • Electrophysiological study (EPS)
  • Angiography of arteries and veins outside the heart
Open Close
THERAPEUTIC CATHETER PROCEDURES
  • Balloon dilatation of the coronary vessels (PTCA) and stent implantation
  • Balloon dilatation at the arteries (PTA) outside the heart and stent implantation (including the aorta)
  • Obliteration of pathologically changed tissue in the heart (ablation) in case of complex cardiac dysrhythmias and atrial fibrillation
  • Closure of congenital heart defects (atrial septal defects, patent foramen ovale)
  • Expanding of stenosed cardiac valves
  • Occlusion (embolisation) of non-functional vessels
  • Catheter-based aortic valve replacement
  • Catheter-based occlusion of the artrial appendage
  • Catheter-assisted therapy for tricuspid valve leakage (tricuspid clipping)
  • Obliteration of nerve fibers in renal arteries (ablation) in resistent hypertension
Open Close
PACEMAKER SURGERY
  • implantation of all kinds of Pacemakers
  • catheter-supported implantable, wireless pacemakers (leadless pacing)
  • as well as ICD (automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillators), univentricular and biventricular
Open Close
FURTHER TREATMENT PROCESSES
  • Cardioversion in case of fast cardiac dysrhythmias
  • Circulatory support method (e.g. intra-aortic balloon pump)
