About the department

The Department of Cardiology, Angiology and Pulmonology at the University Hospital Rechts der Isar Munich offers the full range of modern diagnostics and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, pathological lesions of the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels, as well as various respiratory diseases. It is worth noting that the department's cardiologists carry out not only drug therapy for heart diseases, but also many interventional procedures, including TAVI, MitraClip, left atrial appendage closure in case of atrial fibrillation, balloon valvuloplasty and many others. The interventional therapeutic procedures for diseases of the heart, arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels are performed in specially equipped catheterization laboratories. Of particular interest in the field of pulmonology are bronchoscopy, endoscopic lung volume reduction and lung cancer treatment in collaboration with thoracic surgeons, oncologists, radiation therapists and other physicians. The department's specialists give preference to an individual approach to each patient. They use only modern and reliable treatment methods that guarantee an optimal result. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Karl-Ludwig Laugwitz.

The department has excellent diagnostic options for examining the cardiovascular system. The medical facility has diagnostic rooms with state-of-the-art devices for electrocardiography (ECG), including stress and long-term ECG, transthoracic echocardiography (3D, 4D), tissue Doppler echocardiography and speckle tracking echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography (3D, 4D), contrast-enhanced echocardiography. In cooperation with the Department of Nuclear Medicine, cardiac CT and MRI, myocardial scintigraphy and cardiac PET/MRI are performed. After comprehensive diagnostics, the attending physician determines the optimal course of treatment – it can be drug therapy, surgical interventions, or a combination of these techniques. To perform interventional procedures on the heart and coronary arteries, the department is equipped with three progressive cardiac catheterization laboratories. Cardiologists perform interventional procedures for acute coronary syndrome, chronic coronary artery occlusion, left atrial appendage defect, aortic and mitral valve defects, severe heart failure and other pathologies. This treatment is an excellent alternative to classical cardiac surgery, which often requires thoracotomy. The use of minimally invasive catheter-based techniques allows the doctors to perform the necessary therapeutic manipulations on the heart, heart valves and coronary arteries through arterial or venous vascular access, with minimal trauma to the healthy tissues. Cardiac catheterization procedures are performed under local anesthesia, which is also of great benefit to patients.

The department's therapeutic offer also includes the diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels. Depending on the complexity of the clinical case, the treatment can take place both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The department's specialists most often admit patients with carotid artery stenosis, pelvic and lower limb artery stenosis, renal artery stenosis, acute deep vein thrombosis, chronic venous insufficiency, pulmonary embolism. The department's specialists successfully carry out balloon dilation, stent implantation, atherectomy, rotary endarterectomy, lithotripsy and other procedures.

Another important field of the department's ​​clinical activity is pulmonology. The doctors of this medical profile admit patients with diseases of the respiratory system, mediastinum, pleural cavity and diaphragm. Particular attention is paid to performing interventions to remove small neoplasms in the chest. In addition, the department's pulmonologists are highly professional in the treatment of alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency, pulmonary emphysema, interstitial lung diseases, pulmonary hypertension, allergic diseases and rare lung pathologies. The therapeutic spectrum includes drug therapy and various types of bronchoscopy, including laser treatment, stent implantation, and endoscopic lung volume reduction. The department also has an intensive care unit, where various types of non-invasive and invasive mechanical ventilation are performed.

The medical facility includes 33 specialized departments and 20 interdisciplinary centers, where patients can receive top-class medical care in all medical fields. 

The hospital annually admits more than 65,000 inpatients for diagnostics and treatment, and about 250,000 outpatients receive effective medical care. The hospital also performs more than 40,000 surgical procedures every year, and about 2,100 babies are born here annually. One of the most significant achievements of the medical facility can be called the first transplantation of both arms above the elbow performed in 2008. The surgery that lasted 15 hours, and in which 40 doctors of various medical specialties took part, became a real sensation in the scientific world. Thanks to a unique surgical procedure, the doctors managed to give the patient new hands.

In addition, the employees of the hospital are actively involved in research activities, in which they study various diseases, as well as develop new therapeutic options for their treatment. It should be noted that the research institutes of the hospital are among the most reputable research organizations in the world.
