OUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE

CARDIOLOGY WITH SPECIAL AREA RHYTHMOLOGY

The team at the Heart Center Hirslanden Zurich consists of eight invasive and two non-invasive cardiologists. Cardiology focuses on diagnosing and treating arterial hypertension and other circulatory diseases, especially acute and chronic coronary heart disease. Additional competencies lie in diagnosing and treating structural cardiopathies such as heart valve diseases, congenital disabilities, or the aorta's diseases. These mainly include transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or transcatheter mitral or tricuspidal valve repair or replacement (Mitraclip, Pascal, Cardioband, Chordart, etc) and aortic endovascular stent implantation (EVAR).

The Heart Center Hirslanden Zurich also has proven expertise in diagnosing and treating cardiac arrhythmias of all degrees of severity. The rhythmological spectrum also includes the implantation of pacemakers or other antiarrhythmic systems.

Cardiac imaging methods such as echocardiography, computed tomography, or radiation-free magnetic resonance imaging are used for the non-invasive diagnosis of cardiac and cardiovascular diseases.

An increasing number of complex combination interventions on heart valves and coronary arteries are also being performed. Available interventions on the aorta and carotid artery also belong to the extended cardiac surgery spectrum.

The heart surgery team also has many years of experience in treating patients with severe heart failure and is trained in the use of circulatory support systems. As an innovative field, robotics is a scientific and clinical field of activity for innovative heart operations.

RHYTHMOLOGY

Rhythmology is a discipline that deals with all forms and treatment options for cardiac arrhythmias.

The main focus is on the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias by ablating/sclerosing small parts of the inner heart wall with special catheters. This rectifies the incorrect course of the stimulation current inside the heart in the case of rhythm disturbances.

IMAGING

The two modern imaging methods (echocardiography and magnetic ¬resonance¬ imaging) enable a non-invasive, gentle examination of the heart. Diseases of the heart muscle, heart valves, congenital heart defects, and other conditions can be detected precisely. Echocardiography works with ultrasound waves, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses magnetic fields to create layered heart images.

Transthoracic echocardiography

Transesophageal echocardiography (transoesophageal echo)

(Contrast) stress echocardiography (physical and pharmacological)

Intraoperative and intrainterventional echocardiography

Cardiac MRI

PACEMAKER/ICD

Pacemakers are electronic systems that prevent various cardiac arrhythmias possible that lead to an excessively slow pulse. Progress in microelectronics has led to today's modern systems being able to control up to three chambers of the heart, thus ensuring that the heart's electrical activity is as physiological as possible. Life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias are eliminated utilizing so-called internal defibrillators (ICD), wich also offer a pacemaker function.
