About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Defects at the University Hospital Giessen under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Christian Jux covers the entire spectrum of pediatric cardiology, which can be divided into two focuses: invasive and non-invasive diagnosis and treatment. An important focus of pediatric cardiology at the University Hospital Giessen is heart transplantation.

The Department of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Defects pays special attention to heart transplantation. Since 1998, a total of 75 children have undergone heart transplantation at the Giessen University Hospital. The frequency of such procedures has been around 8-10 cases per year since 1995. In most cases (56 out of 75), these were children under the age of 12 months (at the time of the surgery). Thus, the University Hospital Giessen is the European leader in heart transplantation in infants. 

The Department of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Defects is part of the Cardiology Center at the University Hospital Giessen. The Center offers the full range of surgical procedures for congenital heart diseases. There are annually performed over 500 interventions, while over 250 of them involve the use of a heart–lung machine.
