Interdisciplinary treatment of heart valve patients

Every year, more than 600 catheter-based treatments of heart valve diseases are performed at the German Heart Center Berlin (DHZB), including 560 TAVI procedures for aortic valve replacement alone. Our teams from the Departments of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery and Internal Medicine - Cardiology have been working closely together on this for many years.

With the establishment of an independent unit for interventional valve therapy, the "Transcatheter Valve Unit (TVU)", this interdisciplinary treatment concept is now being further intensified. 

This means that our patients receive interdisciplinary care from the time they are admitted to the hospital until they are discharged - in close cooperation with the Clinic for Cardioanaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine and the imaging and heart failure therapy teams.

Our interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses and coordinators is there for you. The specialists provide multidisciplinary advice to heart valve patients on all treatment methods, perform complex operations and take care of nursing and support as well as organization and scientific networking.
