Information for Patients and Visitors

Broad Spectrum of Treatment

The DHZB has three outpatient departments.
These departments are part of the Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, Department of Internal Medicine – Cardiology, Department of Congenital Heart Disease – Pediatric Cardiology, and Department of Congenital Heart Surgery – Pediatric Surgery.

Patients from the Department of Congenital Heart Surgery – Pediatric Surgery are cared for after surgery by the Department of Congenital Heart Disease – Pediatric Cardiology. We do our best to make your visit to our outpatient departments as pleasant as possible. Please appreciate that emergency patients always have priority and that this may cause delays, meaning that you need to wait.

Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery

We mainly care for patients known to need heart surgery and those who have been operated upon. The Department is also open to all patients who would like advice on the need for a heart operation.

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.
