Heart catheter - interventional cardiology
Cardiovascular disease is very common in western industrialized countries. Investigations are carried out using non-invasive diagnostic methods, with a state-of-the-art heart catheter facility available for invasive diagnostics and treatment where necessary.
In addition to conservative treatment of heart disease, it is also possible to widen the coronary vessels using a balloon catheter. Stents (vascular implants to widen narrowed blood vessels) can also be introduced to treat vascular occlusion (blockages) and electrophysiological interventions are carried out for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia.
