About the department
The Department of Cardiology and Angiology at the Max Grundig Clinic Buehl offers all the options of modern diagnostics for the prevention and early detection of cardiovascular diseases. The department's patients are provided with highly effective drug treatment using the latest generation medicines, as well as many recreational procedures to improve overall health and prevent the development of life-threatening pathologies. Medical care is provided both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The department's competent specialists select the optimal set of diagnostic tests for each patient, according to the results of which they prescribe the required therapy. The department's medical team has vast clinical experience in the diagnostics and treatment of congenital and acquired heart diseases, arterial hypertension, occlusive arterial diseases, thrombosis and other pathologies. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Curt Diehm.
The department's range of medical service in the field of cardiology is focused on providing effective rehabilitation treatment for the patients who have suffered acute coronary syndrome, surgical interventions on the heart valves, coronary artery bypass grafting, surgery to implant pacemakers and defibrillators. In addition, the department's specialists have successful experience in the treatment of heart failure and the correction of high blood pressure. Of particular interest is the conduction of comprehensive screening examinations in order to prevent the development of heart disease. The department's cardiologists also carry out special diagnostic tests for the assessment of the state of the cardiovascular system in professional athletes. The department's diagnostic options include echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, stress echocardiography, electrocardiography, 24-hour blood pressure monitoring, 24-hour Holter monitoring, etc.
Angiology is also a priority focus of the department's clinical activities. This medical field is responsible for the prevention, diagnostics and treatment of pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, circulatory disorders in the carotid arteries, arteries of the legs and arms, kidney arteries, etc. Untimely detection and treatment of circulatory disorders and vascular occlusions can lead to death, and therefore the primary task of the department's doctors is to provide the high-quality diagnostics to assess the risk of development or detect a particular vascular disease at an early stage. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art systems for Doppler ultrasonography, color duplex sonography, deep and superficial vein sonography, CT and MRI angiography, etc. If the diagnostic results confirm a vascular pathology in the patient, the department's doctors elaborate the optimal drug therapy regimen for him, and also prescribe a course of general health improving measures – diet therapy, therapeutic exercises, swimming, etc.
