Heart & Vascular Theme

Our vision is to act as a hub and knowledge centre for patients requiring highly specialised care. The theme’s activity is integrated with specialities, care, research and training. We offer patients care in all areas relating to the heart and circulation.

The theme has about 500 personnel spread throughout four patient areas: heart failure and congenital heart defects, coronary vessel and heart valve disease, arrhythmia and vascular disease. Within these patient areas there are nine patient flows and a common care department. Care is provided both in Solna and in Huddinge.

The theme is at the forefront in the Nordic region in the development and application of new, less injurious and minimally invasive methods for providing highly specialised cardiac care.

All care is provided in close collaboration with specialised function areas, primarily within Perioperative Medicine and Intensive Care, Diagnostic Imaging and Physiology and Health Professions. Together, we follow the patient throughout the entire flow.

There is a high level of integration between our four patient areas. Within all of them, innovative care, research and training is carried out in order to optimise diagnosis and treatment for the various patient groups.
