Welcome to the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory
The Erding Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory provides diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients suffering from a wide range of diseases of the blood supply to the heart, the cardiac muscle or the cardiac valves.
- coronary angiography, i.e. imaging of the coronary arteries that makes it possible to easily identify constrictions or blockages;
- coronary interventions to reopen such constrictions or blockages;
- medical care for patients who suffered an acute myocardial infarction, which is still the primary cause of death in industrialized countries.
The telemetry system for emergency physicians is an integral part of 24-hour medical care. It allows the emergency physician to transmit an ECG to the hospital. Should such an ECG indicate a myocardial infarction, the cardiac catheter team can be alerted even before the emergency physician arrives at the hospital, making it possible to help the patient even faster. Close collaboration with the German Heart Center in Munich guarantees that patients requiring cardiosurgery are also in the best possible hands.
