Clinic with a focus on cardiology — Charité Berlin 26 Jahre Erfahrung

University heart medicine with great experience

The medi­cal cli­nic with a focus on car­dio­lo­gy on the Virch­ow-Kli­ni­kum cam­pus (direc­tor: Prof. Dr. Bur­kert Pies­ke) wel­co­mes you. With us, peo­p­le with heart dise­a­se are trea­ted and cared for at the hig­hest level. As a uni­ver­si­ty cli­nic, we also make an important con­tri­bu­ti­on to rese­arch and teaching.

The medi­cal cli­nic with a focus on car­dio­lo­gy is part of the Cha­ri­té — the lar­gest uni­ver­si­ty cli­nic in Euro­pe and one of the four car­diac medi­cal cli­nics of the Cha­ri­té Cen­ter for Car­dio­vas­cu­lar and Vas­cu­lar Medi­ci­ne (CC11). Tog­e­ther with the Ger­man Heart Cen­ter Ber­lin, we are deve­lo­ping into the Uni­ver­si­ty Heart Cen­ter Ber­lin, which will be Europe’s lar­gest heart cen­ter in the future. At the site, we work clo­se­ly with the Cli­nic for Car­dio­vas­cu­lar Sur­gery, which moved at the begin­ning of 2018 (Direc­tor: Prof. Dr. Volk­mar Falk).

Our team spe­cia­li­zes in the dia­gno­sis and tre­at­ment of all car­dio­vas­cu­lar dise­a­ses. Whe­re neces­sa­ry, we draw on the inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry com­pe­tence of other medi­cal faci­li­ties at the Cha­ri­té so that you can always count on excel­lent, holi­stic care.

With a heart for your heart — you can count on us!

Services and therapies in the field of cardiovascular diseases

The car­dio­lo­gy depart­ment at the Virch­ow-Kli­ni­kum tre­ats the enti­re spec­trum of car­dio­vas­cu­lar diseases.

Every day the­re is a 24-hour stand­by for car­diac emer­gen­ci­es (heart attack, heart fail­ure, car­diac arrhyth­mia), which can be pre­sen­ted to theemer­gen­cy room.

As a cli­nic of the Cha­ri­té Uni­ver­si­ty Medi­ci­ne, we use the latest dia­gno­stic and the­ra­peu­tic methods and sci­en­ti­fic fin­dings for the best pos­si­ble indi­vi­du­al and pati­ent-ori­en­ted treatment.

Cardiac intensive care medicine

The car­dio­lo­gi­cal inten­si­ve care unit W47i and the car­dio­lo­gi­cal inter­me­dia­te care sta­ti­on (IMC) W2i are used to tre­at cri­ti­cal­ly ill and unsta­ble pati­ents.

Car­dio­lo­gi­cal inten­si­ve care hot­line (24/7): acu­te myo­car­di­al infarc­tion, car­diac arrhyth­mi­as, car­dio­ge­nic shock and car­dio­vas­cu­lar sup­port (ECMO).

Heart failure

In the last few years, essen­ti­al know­ledge about the dia­gno­sis and the­ra­py of heart fail­ure (heart mus­cle weak­ne­ss) has been gai­ned. Depen­ding on the fil­ling and ejec­tion func­tions of the heart, dif­fe­rent types of heart fail­ure are distin­gu­is­hed. For heart fail­ure with a redu­ced ejec­tion frac­tion (HFrEF), both estab­lished and new the­ra­py methods have been available for some time to impro­ve sym­ptoms and pro­gno­sis. Heart fail­ure with pre­ser­ved ejec­tion frac­tion (HFpEF, “dia­sto­lic heart fail­ure”, “stiff heart”) can be bet­ter dia­gno­sed with new dia­gno­stic methods and requi­res an indi­vi­dua­li­zed the­ra­py concept.
