Apart from the established areas such as lung transplantation, internal intensive care medicine, pulmonary hypertension, thoracic oncology and of pulmonary infectiology including cystic fibrosis and bronchiectasis, we complemented our know-how with two further focal areas in the last two years.
For interstitial lung diseases and sarcoidosis an outpatient clinic and a research focus was established. The latter in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Toxicology and experimental Pneumology (ITEM). New diagnostic and therapeutic options in this field are being investigated and applied.
Severe obstructive airway diseases as Asthma and COPD can be treated more specifically with new antibody based therapies. New bronchoscopy based procedures as the non-invasive lung volume reduction with valves or coils and the thermo- ablation are offered for special cases.
