About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Cardiology and Angiology at the University Hospital Frankfurt under the lead of Prof. Dr. Andreas M. Zeiher offers all current cardiological and angiological diagnostic and therapeutic options. In addition, modern invasive / interventional therapy procedures are available.  Such clinical pictures as heart rhythm disturbances, heart failure, cardiac valve disorders, hypertension, etc. are treated on the outpatient basis. The Department of Cardiology is listed in the FOCUS-list of TOP German hospitals in 2017!

A major focus in the Department of Cardiology, headed by Prof. Dr. Andreas M. Zeiher, is the catheter-supported treatment of structural heart diseases. First of all, this includes the interventional therapy of congenital or acquired heart valve diseases. In case of elderly or seriously ill patients, as well as young patients and patients with multiple previous operations, the specialists of the Department may offer interventional therapies of the aortic valve (TAVI), the pulmonary valve, the mitral valve (e.g. MitraClip) or the tricuspid valve. The local heart teams consider therapy solutions with regard to interventional therapy in the field of heart valves which are decided for each patient individually.

The cardiological range of services at the University Hospital Frankfurt comprises i.a.:

  • Basic cardiac diagnosis
  • Echocardiography (including 4D)
  • Invasive cardiology / cardiac catheter laboratory
  • Heart valve therapy
  • Electrophysiology
  • Heart pacemaker and defibrillator therapy
  • Invasive electrophysiology
  • Telemedicine
  • Hypertension
  • Adults with congenital heart defects
  • Cardiovascular imaging (MRT / CT)

The field of angiology specializes on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with arterial and venous vascular diseases outside the heart. The University Hospital Frankfurt has at its disposal all the methods for non-invasive and invasive vascular diagnosis. The main focus of the Department is on the treatment of patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (“window shopper's disease”). Narrowing in the field of pelvic and leg arteries often cause pain in the area of the thighs or calf muscles during walking, which forces the patient to stop. In most cases, the narrowing can be treated minimally invasive in the catheter laboratory. 

In the treatment of angiological diseases, preference is given to minimally invasive therapy methods. The range encompasses the following options:

  • Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA)
  • Cutting balloon angioplasty
  • Angioplasty with drug-eluting balloons (drug-coated balloons)
  • Stentimplantation including drug-eluting stents (drug-coated stents)
  • Recanalisation of long-term, chronic occlusions
  • Local intraarterial lysotherapy
  • Autologous bone marrow cell therapy in the therapy-refractory course of peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAD) in Fontaine Stage III-IV
