About the department
The Department of Cardiology and Internal Intensive Care Medicine at the Academic Hospital Harlaching provides the whole spectrum of diagnostics and treatment for diseases of the heart and adjacent vessels. Cardiological priorities include myocardial infarction, treatment of heart valve defects, for example, MitraClip for mitral valve insufficiency, TAVI for aortic valve stenosis, treatment of heart rhythm disorders in the modern electrophysiological laboratory, interventional treatment of structural heart diseases, etc. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med.
The Department of Cardiology has 2 Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories (among the most modern ones in Munich), which allow for the treatment of coronary heart diseases at the latest level of medical achievements. Thanks to modern technologies, in comparison with the previous generation, the radiation dose for both patient and doctor can be reduced by more than 50%.
The Department of Cardiology is also the Chest Pain Unit certified by the German Society of Cardiology. This means that patients with complaints of chest pain derive a special benefit here, since they can receive rapid diagnosis and subsequent targeted treatment.
Another advantage of the department is cooperation of four adjacent disciplines of internal therapy and neurology in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac diseases. There is provided multidisciplinary and comprehensive treatment (and diagnostics) of diseases of the heart, vessels, lungs and internal organs, as well as brain diseases. Therefore, for example, dialysis patients with a high risk of cardiovascular diseases benefit from collaboration with the Department of Nephrology. Similarly, patients with stroke can also get optimal diagnosis and treatment here.

- Coronary heart diseases, myocardial infarction
