Outpatients

at the Department of Internal Medicine Cardiology

Comprehensive Treatment of all Heart Diseases

Our Cardiology Outpatient Department offers treatment for patients with all kinds of heart disease, including pacemaker and defibrillator checks. Further, we have an emergency department for acute chest pain (Chest Pain Unit). We also provide care for inpatients of the DHZB.

We endeavor to make your appointment with us as pleasant as possible. Since different forms of treatment require different lengths of time it may not be possible for patients to be seen in the order in which they arrive. Emergency patients always have priority. Please appreciate this if you need to wait.

Clinic for Severe Heart Failure

Following the great progress made in the pharmacological, interventional and surgical treatment of heart disease, many more patients are reaching chronic and advanced stages of their diseases. In the late stages most heart diseases have in common the development of increasing heart weakness (heart failure), i.e. inadequate pumping of the heart. Typical heart failure symptoms are decreased tolerance of exertion, breathlessness and edema (the collection of water in the legs and body tissue).

Severe heart failure is a great decrease in the pumping power of the heart, with pronounced symptoms despite application of the standard treatment. It represents a particular challenge and often requires complex, individual treatment concepts. To meet this challenge the DHZB has developed an interdisciplinary program for severe heart failure. The Clinic for Severe Heart Failure is a significant part of this program. It is the first port of call for outpatients in whom severe heart failure has been diagnosed or is suspected. At the Clinic comprehensive diagnostic clarification takes place so that an individually tailored treatment concept can be decided upon and further treatment initiated. Depending on the outside care the patient is receiving, our role varies from diagnosis and counselling at a single appointment through treatment parallel to other care, to comprehensive cardiological treatment.
The Clinic focusses on advanced diagnostic methods (e.g. spiroergometry, cardiac MRI) and, when indicated, advanced treatment concepts (e.g. structural interventions, mechanical circulatory support, transplantation). The aim is always optimal treatment in close cooperation with the other doctors treating the patient.

Clinic for Pulmonary Hypertension

The Department of Internal Medicine – Cardiology offers special clinics for outpatients with pulmonary hypertension (elevated lung pressure). All the necessary diagnostic methods and treatment options are available. All patients are treated in close interdisciplinary cooperation and discussion with different specialties and specialized centers, to guarantee the best possible, integrated approach.
