The Department of Cardiology at the University Hospital Würzburg is engaged in the diagnostics and treatment of all types of cardiovascular diseases. The department specializes in catheter techniques for the treatment of heart defects and cardiac arrhythmias, the implantation of special pacemakers in heart failure, etc. The department has in its arsenal an advanced medical infrastructure, for example an echocardiography laboratory, 3 Tesla MRI scanner, etc. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Stefan Frantz.

The department is a recognized center for cardiac catheterization. The heart catheter diagnostics is a reliable method for the detection of coronary artery stenosis. The department regularly performs such procedures as balloon dilatation, stent implantation or rotabulation. With the help of catheter techniques, heart valve defects and structural defects of the heart wall are corrected. In particular, the department specializes in transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and transcatheter mitral valve repair (MitraClip), catheter treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, etc.

The treatment of heart failure is one of the priorities of the department. The department offers accurate diagnostics, expert knowledge and comprehensive care in the treatment of any stage of heart failure. For these purposes, the department has the state-of-art technical capabilities and cooperates closely with the German Comprehensive Heart Failure Center (DZHI) and other departments.

A team of doctors works in three modern catheterization laboratories 24 hours a day. It provides medical care for patients with acute heart attack and performs urgent interventions on the coronary arteries.
