Professor Martin Schneider: Medical advancements that save little ones’ lives

The German Paediatric Heart Centre (DKHZ) in St. Augustin in Bonn is one of the largest centres in Germany for the treatment of congenital heart defects in patients of all ages – from foetuses to fully grown adults.

We treat the very smallest of patients from the 20th week of gestation, i.e. before they are born, right through to adulthood. Our experienced paediatric cardiology specialists offer the full spectrum of diagnostic techniques, including heart ultrasound, ECG, pacemaker monitoring and programming, cardiac MRI and diagnostic and invasive procedures in the heart catheter laboratory. The latest and very best diagnostic techniques and highly experienced paediatric cardiologists are essential if complex, high-risk illnesses are to be identified successfully – for the entire team of paediatric cardiologists, paediatric anaesthetists, paediatric nurses, psychologists and other specialists, this is a daily challenge that brings them the greatest success of all – cured patients who can look forward to a very good, i.e. completely normal quality of life, and their overjoyed parents.

The better the diagnosis, the better the treatment, the better the outcome. Cardiological diagnosis has improved dramatically in recent years, speeding up the identification of complex illnesses and paving the way for interventional therapeutic treatment, i.e. treatment that does not involve surgery. Not only does this avoid open heart surgery, which always entails a degree of risk, but it also greatly reduces the duration of the treatment and therefore the amount of time the patient has to stay in hospital. Particularly from a psychological perspective, this is hugely significant to children and their parents.

Expertise and dedication

Our paediatric cardiologists offer you end-to-end treatment:

  • Prenatal screening

  • Pacemaker and defibrillator therapy

  • All the latest diagnostic techniques in the field of paediatric cardiology

  • Special performance diagnostics to test suitability for sport / diving

  • Comprehensive range of interventional therapy options

  • Cameras that are attached to heart catheters enabling us to look inside the arteries

  • Pre- and post-operative (long-term) care

  • Diagnosis and treatment of cardiac irregularity

  • Second opinions on surgical or interventional treatments

In interventional treatments, cardiologists insert miniscule catheters, cameras, balloons or occluders into arteries such as in those in the groin. These instruments are then threaded into the heart and positioned so that defects can be repaired, enabling the previously very sick heart to be completely healed and to function as normal. The positive outcomes achieved by the paediatric cardiologists at the German Paediatric Heart Centre in St. Augustin are outstanding and are held in high regard by colleagues in Germany and abroad. The number of healed patients and the feedback received by the children and their parents is proof positive of the expertise and dedication shown by our team. Paediatric cardiology, in particular, is a field that requires experienced and dedicated specialists to carry out the precision work.

Blutenfest des Rotes Moselweinbergpfirsich


We hebben éven moeten oefenen, maar na een tijdje rolde Rote Moselweinbergpfirsich vanzelf uit onze mond. Toch kan je in Cochem ook gewoon Rud Peesche zeggen, het plaatselijke dialect voor deze kleine perzik met haar robijnrode vruchtvlees die overal in de Moezelvallei groeit. Terwijl de wijngaarden er nog kaal bijliggen, zijn de roze bloemen van de Moezel-Wijnbergperzik al een fleurige voorbode van de lente. Goed nieuws voor de plaatselijke wijnboeren dus, maar ook voor al wie dol is op perziken, want dan wordt er in Cochem smakelijk gefeest.

Voor de ene is het een stukje Frankrijk in Duitsland, voor de andere is het een stukje Duitsland dat ook in Frankrijk niet zou misstaan. Wij houden het bij typisch Duits met een stevige Franse twist: Saarland. De kleinste Duitse deelstaat ging een paar keer over en weer tussen beide landen, was tweemaal op zichzelf en werd in 1957 definitief bij Duitsland ingelijfd. Het resultaat is een grensoverschrijdende kruisbestuiving van savoir-vivre en savoir-faire die zich vooral in de lokale gastronomie laat gelden. Wij trokken in Saarland letterlijk van de ene rijk gedekte tafel naar de andere, gingen er tafeltoeren en lieten ons galant overtuigen van het feit dat je van 'een schone tafel' wél kan eten.

Crazy SB Waschsalon

Crazy SB Waschsalon

Quando estamos viajando, nada como ter uma lavanderia perto para as horas de aperto. Não tem como não notar essa lavanderia toda "modernosa". Crazy SB Waschsalon chama a atenção por suas centenas de meias penduradas. Uma decoração perfeita para o ambiente. Eu não cheguei a lavar nenhuma roupa na minha estádia em Dresden, mas se ficasse mais uns dias, teria voltado lá de certeza. Fica na Louisenstraße 6, aberto todos os dias das 06h - 23h.

Travel Bookshop

Travel Bookshop - para os apaixonados por viagem

As coisas mais legais, sem dúvidas eu encontrei em Neustadt. É a região mais alternativa e legal de Dresden. Foi lá que eu vi uma das Lojas de Livros de Viagem mais legais. É aquela loja/livraria/papelaria que você vai querer comprar tudo. Passei uma boa hora lá dentro, folheando (porque ler em alemão, nem em sonho!) todos os guias, livros. Comprei uns postais lindos. Bobeei por não ter comprado uns mapas antigos, eram lindos.

1000 e 1 passagem

Em Neustadt tem a Kunsthofphpassage, que é uma passagem incrível. Ela tem vários prédios "temáticos". O azul por exemplo quando chove, a água nos canos vira música. Fora os prédios, ainda tem várias lojas bacanas e cafés charmosos para você aproveitar. #youngDresden #mustsees #shopping #cafés

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.
