Cardiovascular diseases and the haemostatic system


  • The epidemiology and pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases with the emphasis on thrombo-cardiological aspects.
  • The haemostatic balance – activation and regulation of the coagulation- and the fibrinolytic systems.
  • Biochemical methods and standardization issues. Polymorphisms in the haemostatic system.
  • Antithrombotic and thrombolytic treatment of cardiovascular diseases.


  • The students will gain insight into the haemostatic aspects of cardiovascular diseases on the background of the epidemiology of cardiovascular diseases. The main focus is on the biochemical processes that regulate the coagulation system and the fibrinolytic system.
  • The students will get knowledge of the pathophysiology of the thrombotic diseases and a thorough insight into the biochemical methods used in diagnostics, monitoring and treatment of thrombotic diseases, including genetic polymorphisms with relevance for the development of cardiovascular diseases.
  • The students will gain insight into the antithrombotic treatment of cardiovascular diseases, including thrombolytic treatment.
