  1. 1. Department of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine University Clinic of Tuebingen Germany Welcome to the Clinic of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine at University Hospital of Tuebingen Medical Director: Professor Dr. med. Meinrad Gawaz Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine University Hospital Tuebingen Eberhard-Karls-Universitaet Tuebingen Otfried-Mueller-Strasse 10 Germany Phone: +49-(0)7071-2983688 Fax: +49-(0)7071-295749 E-mail: kardiologie@med.uni-tuebingen.de www.medizin.uni-tuebingen.de/kardiologie/ The clinic of cardiology and cardiovascular diseases at University Hospital of Tuebingen is open to all patients with suspected or diagnosed cardiovascular diseases. Our clinic is able to perform all diagnostic and therapeutic measures and is nationally and internationally renowned for prevention and treatment of patients with cardiovascular diseases. Our main objective is to use techniques for diagnosis and treatment that do almost no harm on human body. Among these are examinations with non-invasive methods such as echocardiography, MRI, CAT scan, nuclear medicine. Our objective is not only to treat cardiovascular diseases but also to early identify them and to give advice for prevention. For this, experts in specialized out-patient departments are available for our patients. The clinic’s employees permanently look after to develop the diagnostic and therapeutic measures according to the latest professional aspects in order to guarantee our patients the best advice and treatment. At the clinic of cardiology and cardiovascular diseases you will have the option and guarantee to receive a modern treatment by an experienced team. We continuously secure the optimum international standard as well as the high quality of work because of the strong ties between basic science, applied clinical research, and treatment of patients. In addition to elective medical care for cardiological patients, our clinic for cardiology and cardiovascular diseases is predominantly specialized in emergency treatment and guarantees the best care with a „round-the-clock“ (24 hour)-service. Thus, the 1 von 12

  3. 3. Department of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine University Clinic of Tuebingen Germany Main Focus of Treatment at Clinic for Cardiology and Cardiovascular Diseases: • Clinical Cardiovascular Medicine • Interventional Cardiology • Rhythmology • Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases (Prevention of Myocardial Infarction or Sudden Cardiac Death) Clinical Cardiovascular Medicine Clinical cardiology takes place in the in- and out-patient field. For the out-patient department we have specialized consulting hours by experienced and specialized employees. Out-patient Department Consulting hours for: • coronary artery disease (CAD), interventions and stent treatment • patients with heart failure • patients with cardiac rhythm disturbance • cardiac valvular defects • prevention of cardiovascular diseases, particularly CAD/myocardial infarction • antithrombotic treatment of risk patients (atrial fibrillation, artificial valve, drug- eluting stents, aspirin and clopidogrel resistance) • pacemaker patients • patients with implanted cardioverter defibrillators • resynchronization therapy for heart • adult patients with congenital heart (in cooperation with children’s clinic of cardiology, medical director: Prof. Dr. Michael Hofbeck) • Noninvasive heart imaging (Cardio-CT) (Professor Schroeder) • Consulting Professor Gawaz 3 von 12
  4. 4. Department of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine University Clinic of Tuebingen Germany In our outpatient department we preform all cardiovascular, non-invasive examinations: • 12-lead ECG • ergometry (cycling in a sitting position, partly lying and lying; treadmill) • spiroergometry • carotis pressure ECG • tilt-table examination • holter ECG (24 hours and 7 days) • 12-lead holter ECG • event recorder • long-term blood pressure measurement • control and setting of pacemakers • control and setting of implanted cardioverter defibrillators • echocardiography with color-coding and tissue characterization • stress Doppler echocardiography (with drugs and with physical strain) • transesophageal echocardiography • color-coded duplex sonography for extracranial arteries • abdominal ultrasound • thyroid ultrasound (in correlation to vascular diseases) Inpatient Treatment According to the severity of disease and diagnostic need we perform patient care on 4 wards: • public insured patients 3-Sued-vorne • private insured patients 3-Sued-hinten • short-term stay 7-Ost • cardiological intensive care unit (ICU) 3-intensiv hinten 4 von 12
  5. 5. Department of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine University Clinic of Tuebingen Germany Interventional Cardiology Our department of cardiology has 2 heart catheter laboratories for the intervention in coronary arteries, valvular burst, transcoronary ablation of septal hypertrophy etc. The following invasive diagnostic measures are available: • 24-hour myocardial infarction care with direct percutanous coronary intervention (PCI) • PCI and stent implantation (balloon dilatation of occluded coronary artery with the implantation of a stent) • left and right heart catheter examination, hemodynamic examinations • right heart catheter with physical strain • intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) with virtual histology • taking of tissue samples (biopsy) from heart and vessels using catheter • stent implantation with so-called drug-eluting stents • local balloon-based antiproliferative therapy to avoid the restenosis (LOCAL- TAX) • rotablation (removing of plaques in vessels using fast rotating catheter) • occlusion of septum defects with heart catheter technique • dilatation in renal artery stenosis • transcoronary ablation of septal hypertrophy (TASH) in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy • balloon dilatation of valvular stenosis (valvular bursts) Rhythmology The clinic of cardiology and cardiovascular disease performs specialized examinations and treatments in the field of conduction pathways. There are all invasive and non-invasive methods available. Major focus lies on catheter ablation of heart rhythm disturbances (invasive electrophysiology) and implantation of pacemaker and defibrillator systems (implantology). 5 von 12
  6. 6. Department of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine University Clinic of Tuebingen Germany Invasive Electrophysiology The clinic of cardiology and cardiovascular diseases has a heart catheter laboratory for invasive treatment for heart rhythm disturbances. Major focus for invasive electrophysiology is: • treatment of heart rhythm disturbances by the elimination of heart structures that cause disorders using a heart catheter (so-called curative ablation) • electrophysiological diagnosis of heart rhythm disturbances • ablation of intermittent and permanent atrial fibrillation • ablation of ventricular tachycardia Implantation of Pacemakers, Defibrillators, biventricular Pace- makers (Resynchronization Therapy) The clinic of cardiology and cardiovascular diseases has a cooperation with the clinic of cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery (medical director: Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h.c. Gerhard Ziemer) and performs implantations of all pacemaker and defibrillator devices. Major focus lies on the so-called resynchronization therapy, i.e., the support of cardiac function by a pacemaker system in patients with heart failure. Implantology comprises: • implantation of highly differentiated pacemaker systems and automatic cardioverter defibrillators (AICD). • implantation of biventricular pacemaker systems (resynchronization therapy) • implantation of event recorders for syncope diagnosis • implantationen of antibradycard pacemaker systems • explantation of pacemaker systems and defibrillators • revisions of complex systems 6 von 12
  7. 7. Department of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine University Clinic of Tuebingen Germany Prevention of Cardiovascular (Prevention of Myocardial Infarction and Sudden Cardiac Death) Cardiovascular diseases are the most frequent diseases in our society. Major focus of our clinic lies on the prevention of all cardiovascular diseases. In addition to the regular consulting hours, we offer outpatient cardiovascular examinations („cardiovascular checkup“), which includes all modern non-invasive examination methods. Cardiovascular Checkup • case history and physical examination • ECG • ergometry • 24-hour holter ECG • 24-hour long-term blood pressure measurement • 7-day holter ECG • event recorder • color-coded echocardiography (ultrasonic cardiac imaging) • stress Doppler echocardiography • color-coded duplex sonography for extracranial arteries (vascular ultrasound) • ergometry and lung function (spiroergometry) • abdominal ultrasound • laboratory for atherosclerosis and heart diseases (cholesterol, BNP etc.) • calculation of risk for myocardial infarction (PROCAM risk value) 7 von 12
