About the department keyboard_arrow_down

According to the Focus magazine rating of 2017, the Department of Cardiology and Angiology at the University Hospital Frankfurt ranks among the top German departments in the treatment of heart diseases!

The Department of Cardiology and Angiology at the University Hospital Frankfurt offers the full range of services in the field of diagnosis and treatment of cardiological and angiologic disorders. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. Andreas M. Zeiher. 

In addition, there are available modern invasive/interventional treatment procedures. Such clinical pictures as heart rhythm disorders, heart failure, cardiac valve disorders, hypertension, etc. can be treated on the outpatient basis. 

A major focus of the department is the catheter-supported treatment of structural heart diseases. First of all, this includes the interventional therapy of congenital or acquired heart valve diseases. For elderly or seriously ill patients, as well as young patients and patients with multiple previous operations, the specialists of the department may offer interventional therapy for the aortic valve (TAVI), pulmonary valve, mitral valve (e.g. MitraClip) or tricuspid valve. The choice of treatment method in the field of interventional heart valve therapy is discussed by an interdisciplinary heart team and decided individually for each patient.

The range of medical services in the field of cardiology:

  • Basic cardiac diagnosis
  • Echocardiography (including 4D)
  • Invasive cardiology / Cardiac Catheter Laboratory
  • Heart valve treatment
  • Electrophysiology
  • Treatment with heart pacemaker / defibrillator 
  • Invasive electrophysiology
  • Telemedicine

The field of angiology specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with arterial and venous vascular diseases outside the heart. The department has at its disposal all the methods for non-invasive and invasive vascular diagnosis and specializes in the treatment of patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (“window shopper's disease”). Narrowing in the pelvic and leg arteries often cause pain in the thighs or calf muscles when walking, which forces the patient to stop. In most cases, these strictures can be treated by a minimally invasive method in the Catheter Laboratory.
