Attention to Transplanted Patients
Transplanted patients are a major challenge both in terms of prevention as well as diagnosis and treatment of infectiological complications, due to the inevitable immunosuppression. Regular visits of freshly transplanted patients provide continuous patient care. The interdisciplinary developed internal “Transplant Guidelines” form the basis for the prevention and therapy of a variety of possible opportunistic infections. Nevertheless patients still require a close monitoring by our consultation service.
Networking in the hospital is centrally located and it is perceived by the transplant center that all the various programs and cross-cutting disciplines are united under one common roof.
