About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Cardiology at the Academic Hospital Eichsfeld, headed by Dr. med. Stephan Schmidt-Schweda, provides the whole range of diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases. It focuses primarily on the coronary heart disease, myocardial weakness, heart valve diseases, hypertension and heart rhythm disorders. The Department works in a close cooperation with experienced centers (University medicine Göttingen, University Hospital Jena, Central Hospital Bad Berka).

The Department under the lead of Dr. med. Stephan Schmidt-Schweda has a special expertise in treatment of patients with a major (STEMI) and minor (NSTEMI) heart attack. For this purpose, all diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are available; the treatment is carried out according to the established protocols. In patients with a "stable angina pectoris", three types of therapy are basically possible: a pure drug treatment, a heart catheter (stent) or a bypass operation.

Another focus at the Academic Hospital Eichsfeld is diagnosis and therapy of heart muscle weakness. In treatable causes (e.g. heart valve disease or coronary heart disease), an appropriate therapy is carried out (e.g. replacement of the heart valve). In addition, optimal medical treatment is initiated. In certain cases, there is an indication for the implantation of an electrical system (defibrillator, triple chamber pacemaker, system for cardiac contractility modulation). With more than 100 implantation operations annually, the Academic Hospital Eichsfeld is the regional reference center in the field of implantable systems.
