The German cardiologists are real specialists in coronary heart disease treatment. Due to the innovative methods more than 200 000 patients annually get relieved from the coronary heart disease syndrome.
According to statistics, heart diseases cause the most number of deaths. For that reason, a great deal of attention is paid to heart diseases; it is also important that the same attention to this problem should be paid not only by doctors and scientists, but also by people themselves. Myocardial infarction alone kills 330 men and 154 women in 100000 annually; 204 men and 151 women die of a stroke.
In view of the results of November, 2004 survey among almost 600 cardiologists, pediatrician cardiologists and cardiac surgeons from Germany and also basing on 2000 recommendations and personal interviews, 34 cardiac surgeons have been chosen and particularly noted by their colleagues, as well as by representatives of communities created by patients with vessel diseases. You can find information about some of these experts on our website.
Treatment of coronary disease in Germany
Today the following methods for ischemia treatment are used in cardiosurgery in Germany:
- Сoronary artery bypass surgery (standard procedure)
- Minimally invasive heart bypass surgery
Bypass surgery is a rather complex and very expensive operation requiring long postoperative rehabilitation period. That is why cardiac surgeons are always looking for new alternative ways of surgical treatment. There has already been found a method which does not require the heart to be stopped – it is called revasculization. During the surgery heart rate is slowed by special medication. This technique is recommended to patients, in which even short-term cardiac arrest may cause serious problems.
Another method of conducting surgeries without stopping the heart is minimally invasive operation. It reduces injury risk and considerably shortens rehabilitation period.
A particular technique also widely used by German cardiologists is indirect myocardial bypass. The aim of this method is to create the canals of aortic ventricle into the thickness of heart muscle. Effect of this surgery may continue up to three years.
Surgical treatment of vessel diseases, including coronary disease, has been considered standard in cardiac surgery centres of Germany for many years. Latest technologies and methods, modern diagnostic and medical equipment, high-skilled experts and high-quality rehabilitation system allow performing top-level coronary heart disease surgeries up to the world standards. Risk of complications either during the surgery or rehabilitation period is also minimal. German cardiosurgery is by right leading, when it comes to the number of patients who returned to their usual lifestyle thanks to quality treatment.
