Results and Figures

 

In 2015, more than 1,600 cardiac surgery procedures have been performed at Albertinen Cardiovascular Centre. It is particularly gratifying that the rate of off-pump-revascularisations continues to range at a high level of 70%. During cardiac bypass surgery without cardiopulmonary bypass 96% of all patients were exclusively supplied with arterial grafts - that is without veins removed from the leg. This surgical technique of complete arterial revascularization is superior to conventional, as arterial grafts remain open longer than venous and the survival rate of the patients is clearly better.

 

Overall, almost 5,700 cardiac interventions were performed at Albertinen Cardiovascular Centre. Together with other interventions they comprise the interventional and surgical vascular surgery, the coronary interventions, implantation of pacemakers and internal defibrillators and electrophysiological procedures.

 

The number of pacemaker and defibrillator implantations has increased in 2015 with more than 1,000 interventions - the highest in Hamburg. The number of over 6,500 left heart catheters (of which nearly 1,800 stenting or balloon dilation) is equally impressive, and a proof to the vast experience of the cardiologists of the Albertinen Cardiovascular Centre at the sites Schnelsen and Volksdorf. In the field of electrophysiology a total of 500 procedures were performed in the year 2015. In our vascular surgery 760 patients were treated primarily endovascular.

 

In total, approximately 140,000 patients have been treated at the Albertinen Cardiovascular Centre since 1991.
