For the special field of electrophysiology, the Ruhr-University of Bochum created a second Chair at the HDZ NRW in 2018. Here special cardiac catheter examinations, so-called catheter ablations, are performed in order to assess electrical activity within the heart muscle.
Our Clinic uses one of the most state-of-the-art catheter ablation systems worldwide. It facilitates particularly gentle and low-radiation catheter treatment for patients with various cardiac dysrhythmias. Approximately 1,000 ablations are performed in Bad Oeynhausen every year.
When the heart loses its rhythm and cardiovascular function is impaired, a precise diagnosis, an individual treatment strategy and experienced consultations are required. For this reason, patients with cardiac dysrhythmia have their own separate ward.
