Cardiology

The clinics of the Hirslanden Group of Private Hospitals offer all of the methods available today for a precise and comprehensive diagnosis. The patients with cardiovascular diseases are treated in an integral and comprehensive manner. In the process the following therapies are practiced:

  • Balloon angioplasty and implantation of vascular supports (stents) in narrowed or blocked coronary blood vessels; carotid arteries; renal arteries; arm, pelvic and leg blood vessels
  • Atherectomy
  • Valvuloplasty
  • Chemical septal ablation
  • Catheter-technical treatment of cardiac arrhythmias (radiofrequency ablation) and treatment of atrial fibrillation and flutters
  • Implantation of cardiac pacemakers
  • Cardiac resynchronisation therapy with special pacemakers for cardiac insufficiency
  • Implantation of automatic cardioverter/defibrillators (ICD) for life-threatening arrhythmias
  • Cardioversion of atrial fibrillation

 

The cardiological spectrum of services has experienced a steady expansion of therapeutic possibilities such as the latest drug-eluting stent technology combined with treatment with an antithrombotic medication.
