Department of internal medicine (cardiology, angiology, and pulmonology)

The department of internal medicine (cardiology, angiology, and pulmonology) at University Hospital rehts der Isar of the Technical University (TUM) Munich specializes in heart, vascular, and lung diseases. There are three fully-equipped wards and a day clinic at the department. The local intensive care unit is certified by the German Society for Cardiology as a "chest pain unit" (a particular unit for patients with acute chest pain). The committed team of specialized doctors and nursing staff ensures comprehensive and individual patient care. Various catheter laboratories, cardiac ultrasound examination stations (echocardiography), and other technical facilities are available for diagnostics and therapy. More than 3,500 minimally invasive heart and interventional cardiology vascular surgeries are annually performed in the cath labs. In addition, the staff conducts scientific research both experimentally and in many clinical studies. The main topics of research are interventional cardiology (interventions on the heart), genetic studies, inflammatory processes in acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), and vascular medicine (study of vessels). 

Their experts use innovative therapies to treat circulatory disorders of the heart muscle and vessels (arteries, veins, and lymph vessels), the valves, the rhythm of the heart, and all lung diseases. Additionally, the department conducts various surgeries, implantations, endovascular therapy (interventions using catheters), and non-surgical treatment. Endoscopic and minimally invasive surgery are also performed.
