Medical Clinic B

  • Medizinische Klinik B

The Medical Clinic B offers treatment for patients with disorders that affect the heart, lungs and blood vessels. The Medical Clinic B also manages the Internal Medicine Emergency Department, the Internal Medicine Intensive Care Unit, as well as the Emergency Doctor's Station.

A certified Chest Pain Unit is available for the prompt diagnosis of chest pain.

The Clinic provides treatment for patients with disorders of the heart, lungs and blood vessels, as well as intensive care patients. The Clinic also carries out all non-invasive cardiac investigations and sleep laboratory investigations. In addition, the Clinic offers the latest in cardiac care technology, including cardiac MRI and cardiac CT scanning. As a leader in the field of cardiac catheterisation, the Clinic is respected across the region. The Clinic is regarded as a centre of excellence for the diagnosis and treatment (balloon dilation) of coronary heart disease and the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (heart attack).

We specialise in the diagnosis of all types of arrhythmias, as well as offering patients with arrhythmias advice and the most up-to-date treatment options (catheter-based treatments for arrhythmia).

The Clinic offers the latest techniques available in invasive cardiology, including in particular, procedures involving the upper chambers of the heart (PFO closure), aortic stent placement (Stanford type B dissection) and catheter-based aortic valve replacement for high-risk patients. All these procedures are carried out in close cooperation with the Cardiac Surgery Clinic, which is located in the same building.

For emergencies admitted with acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), we have an emergency catheter team on stand-by 24 hours a day.

As a member of the Ludwigshafen Cardiac Centre, the Medical Clinic B works very closely with the Cardiac Surgery Clinic.
