Cardiovascular diseases are among the most common diseases in general medicine. In the cardiology department we have specialised in the treatment of these diseases.

In addition to the emergency unit, where acutely ill patients are treated as outpatients around the clock, the cardiology ward has 35 beds for inpatient care. In the event of an acute heart attack or dangerous cardiac arrhythmia, we also include our monitoring ward (IMC). Particularly critically ill cardiovascular patients are cared for in our intensive care unit.

For the time after the hospital stay, our Havelhöhe Heart School has different programmes ready for the design of a heart-healthy everyday life.

We are one of the 18 locations in Berlin that offer 24-hour cardiac catheterisation laboratory care for heart attack patients in addition to normal operations. In close cooperation with the Berlin Fire Brigade and two other referring hospitals (Evangelisches Waldkrankenhaus and Medianklinik Berlin), we are available to all heart attack patients around the clock, 365 days a year.

Treatment focus

  • Heart attack
  • Coronary artery stenosis (coronary heart disease)
  • Heart valve diseases
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Heart failure (cardiac insufficiency) in all stages
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

Range of services

  • 24-hour cardiac catheter laboratory availability
  • In case of complications, a modern intensive care unit/monitoring ward is available
  • Cardiac catheter examinations (left and right heart catheter incl. LV angiographies)
  • ECG, stress ECG, long-term ECG
  • Echocardiography (transthoracic and transoesophageal = swallowing echo), stress echocardiography
  • Cardiac MRI (heart MRI)
  • Long-term blood pressure
  • Pacemaker follow-up of all types and makes
  • Pulmonary function with ABG and 6-minute walk test
  • Ergo-spirometry

Cardiac catheterisation procedures:

  • Balloon dilatation (conventional) or with drug-eluting balloons
  • Stents with drug coating; also bio-dissolving stents
  • Vascular function measurements such as determination of the flow quantity in the vessel (RFR, IFR, CFR); intravascular ultrasound (vascular ultrasound)
  • Rotablation angioplasty
  • Heart valve replacement by minimally invasive method for high-grade aortic valve stenosis such as TAVI via the inguinal artery (in cooperation with Charité, Universitätsmedizin Berlin)

Pacemakers of all kinds:

  • Pacemaker for bradycardic (too slow) arrhythmias
  • 1-, 2-, and 3-chamber systems for heart failure and re-synchronisations for left bundle branch block
  • Defibrillators with 1-, 2- and 3-chamber systems
  • Event recorder implantations for e.g. frequent syncope ("film tear")

Electrophysiological examinations in the EPU laboratory:

  • Sclerotherapy of additional conduction pathways in sudden-onset palpitations (WPW, AVRt, AVNRT syndromes)
  • Atrial flutter sclerotherapy
  • Sclerotherapy of atrial fibrillation by means of pulmonary vein isolation with radio frequency or cryo-applications
  • Electrophysiological examinations with special catheters for unexplained arrhythmias
