Diseases and… Diagnostic/Treatment…

Diagnostic/Treatment Modalities

for infants, adolescents, adults - a broad spectrum of advanced diagnostic and therapeutic services (selected list):

  • Rare lung conditions (interstitial lung conditions / pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiectasis, pulmonary hypertension)
  • Thoracic surgery (open / VATS – videoscopically-assisted thoracic surgery techniques / RATS – robot-assisted thoracic surgery techniques
  • bronchoscopy / mediastinoscopy)
  • videoassisted thoracic surgery ("key-hole")
  • standard resections:
  • segmental or wedge resection: removal of only a small part of the lung
  • lobectomy: removal of an entire lobe of the lung
  • pneumonectomy: removal of an entire lung
  • reconstructive surgery on:
  • chest wall
  • tracheobronchial system
  • sleeve resection: removal of a piece of bronchus, after which the lung is reatttached to the remaining part of the bronchus/trachea
  • chestwall correction
  • laser resection
  • on-site pathology
  • thoracic surgery conducted cooperatively with any other surgical university department
  • computed tomography (CT) of the whole body including low-dose CT
  • magnetic resonance tomography (MRI) of the wohle body including lung/chest
  • image guided tissue biopsy including lung
  • CT-guided lung tumour ablation
  • interventional bronchoscopy
  • endoscopic stenting  
  • medical sleep center
  • interventional lung emphysema therapy
  • diagnosis and treatment of respiratory tract diseases
  • long-term ventilation therapy
  • weaning from mechanical ventilation
  • systemic treatment (e.g. chemotherapy, antibody treatment, tyrosine kinase inhibitors, vaccination strategies)
  • multimodality approaches
  • customized treatment options
  • Interstitial Lung Disease
