About this place
Do surgeons perform transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)?
Karlsruhe is one of Europe's most important TAVI centres with many interventions. Since 2008, almost 5,000 TAVI surgeries have been performed. The TAVI Center has been certified by the German Society of Cardiology and has a quality mark.
Can I have an artificial heart implanted at the center?
A ventricular assist device (VAD) is an electrical pump that keeps your heart pumping when it is no longer efficient. Artificial heart implantation is often a life-saving treatment option and an alternative to heart transplant for patients with end-stage heart failure.
Is it possible to get non-surgical treatment at Cardiac Surgery Clinic Helios?
Doctors of Cardiac Surgery Clinic Helios Karlsruhe primarily use conservative medical methods to treat heart diseases. Only in the case of the ineffectiveness of these methods do surgeons use surgical treatment. At the same time, preference is given to minimally invasive and sparing techniques.
