About the department

The department of cardiology at Academic Hospital Koblenz-Montabaur covers the entire spectrum of conservative and interventional treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The department is one of the five largest cardiology departments in Rhineland-Palatinate. The department includes a Chest Pain Unit certified by the German Cardiac Society and is a certified advanced training centre for interventional cardiology. The department has two modern Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories, where the patient is urgently transferred for emergency treatment in case of a heart attack. Also, the most modern cardiac ultrasound devices with 3D technology are available, which enable a precise representation of the heart. Patients can expect excellent medical care, a pleasant atmosphere and friendly human care.

The department offers patients a wide range of internal intensive care services, including extracorporeal procedures such as dialysis procedures and lung replacements. Blocked coronary arteries can be diagnosed in the heart catheter laboratory and opened with a balloon catheter - around the clock. A rotavator is also available for complex cases where heavily calcified blockages can be milled.
