Karl Landsteiner Gesellschaft

Institute for Cardiovascular and Critical Care Research

Work at the Institute

The Institute pursues clinical-cardiological, clinical intensive medical and translational research, with a concentration on patient-focussed and applied clinical research.
Research focuses deliberately not on purely cardiological issues but also on intensive medicine issues in the field of cardiology, since there are here still a good number of outstanding questions that are also of relevance to patients. As a regional centre, we also concentrate on the field of electrophysiology and cardiac insufficiency, interventional cardiology and interventional heart valve therapy. The latter distinguished by a very close cooperation with the in-house cardiac surgery department, which also operates the Karl Landsteiner Institute for Cardiac and Vascular Surgery (director Prof. Dr. M. Grabenwöger). In the field of cardiac insufficiency therapy we treat a very large number of patients with CRT cardiac resynchronisation systems, which will be one of the focuses of our research activity in the coming years.
