RHYTHMOLOGY

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

The main focus is on treating 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.

We offer all standard ablation procedures for all rhythm disorders. Particular emphasis is placed on the treatment of atrial fibrillation and severe cardiac arrhythmias of the heart chambers, the ventricular tachycardia. For the treatment of ventricular tachycardia, we often use invasive circulatory support procedures (Impella pump or ECMO) during ablation/surgery, making it possible to analyze and treat otherwise untreatable rhythm disturbances.

In addition to ablation procedures, we offer all standard pacemakers and defibrillator implantations. We implant three-chamber systems (cardiac resynchronization procedures, CRT-P, and CRT-D) for stimulation in cardiac insufficiency cases.
