HOW DOES A HEALTHY HEART WORK?
The CardioShowroom (CSR) shows you exactly how it works. At the core of the CSR is a 3D heart that can be rotated, cut open, made transparent or zoomed in. Interactive animations illustrate the functions of the healthy heart:
- the pump function
- the blood circulation
- the heart rhythm and
- the flap function.
One click opens the heart and the blood vessels, valve structure and excitation conduction system become visible. The program allows you to take your time and look at the functioning of the healthy heart using comprehensible texts.
WHAT DOES A SICK HEART LOOK LIKE?
Diseases and typical disease progressions can also be systematically selected and displayed on the 3D model at the touch of a button.
From the four categories of cardiovascular diseases
- Circulatory disorders (coronary heart disease)
- heart rhythm disturbances
- flap defect
- Heart failure (heart failure)
the most common diseases can be systematically selected on the 3D model. The corresponding, typical disease courses can be seen and an explanatory animation can be obtained at the touch of a button.
HOW DO YOU CURE A DISEASED HEART?
In the following step you can see the different technical therapy possibilities of the disease. You can see the effects of both established and novel treatment methods. For example, you can see how a closed artery is reopened with catheter technology in the event of a heart attack.
In the case of a narrowed aortic valve – the large valve between the left ventricle and the aorta – it is shown how the valve affected by calcification is dilated and then a biological aortic valve prosthesis is released.
Improved understanding of cardiovascular diseases
The modern 3-D view provides a better understanding of diseases and treatment options. Many questions about certain techniques and procedures are already answered by seeing the therapeutic device used.
