About Us

The American Heart of Poland Group is one of the most important facilities offering treatment for cardiovascular diseases in Poland. Polsko-Ameryka?skie Kliniki Serca, American Heart of Poland S.A. (PAKS, AHP) is a network of interventional cardiology, angiology and cardiosurgery departments in Poland.

Clinics were established in 2000 on the initiative of renowned doctors from Poland and the United States. The idea followed by their founders was to introduce in Poland state-of-the- art methods for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and to provide patients with 24-hour-a-day access to clinics offering treatment for acute myocardial infarction. The network of these facilities was established successfully despite their locations being distant from academic centres, which were neglected, both in terms of access to diagnostic methods and treatment of circulatory diseases. PAKS have already invested several hundred million Polish zlotys in the development of infrastructure, and has purchased the most advanced medical technology. Last year over 26,000 patients were hospitalized in AHP’s facilities.

The pioneering PAKS centre was established in the facilities of the health resort hospital in Ustro?, which today houses a cardiology and angiology ward, a vascular surgery ward and an imaging laboratory. At present, the company owns 22 clinics. The first cardiosurgery centre was established last year in Bielsko-Bia?a. It has a modern hybrid room combining a haemodynamic laboratory and a cardiosurgical operating theatre. With transdermal and surgical techniques cardiac and vascular diseases are treated there in a single location.

PAKS have pioneered:
  • complex treatment of patients with diffuse coronary and peripheral atherosclerosis (including carotid atherosclerosis);
  • performing complex coronary interventions in patients disqualified from cardiosurgical treatment;
  • insertion of devices for atherectomy of peripheral arteries to prevent the consequences of ischaemia in lower extremities.
PAKS have been carrying out scientific research at their own Research and Development Centre aimed at the fast implementation of modern solutions improving the treatment outcomes of cardiac and vascular diseases in clinical practice.

Implemented solutions and scientific accomplishments


The Research and Development Centre at AHP has completed over 18 projects which enabled the implementation of the following solutions in clinical practice:
  • “Chopin”, the first Polish coronary stent made of 316L stainless steel,
  • “KOS”, a coronary stent made of cobalt-chromium alloy,
  • the first stent eluting an antiproliferative drug (paclitaxel) from the surface of a biodegradable polymer,
  • “Shellak”, coatings used on the surfaces of stents and balloons,
  • “Coflexus”, a coronary stent with thin struts made of cobalt-chromium alloy,
  • ”Alex”, coronary stent eluting sirolimus,
  • balloons coated with antiproliferative drugs.
These solutions have had a significant influence on the development of invasive cardiology in Poland. They have improved patients’ safety and comfort through reduced risk of complications and repeated revascularisations, and shorter recovery time, and have also improved the availability of modern technologies and considerably reduced their price. 

In 2011 we received funding and began the implementation of a project under a Scientific Grant from the Polpharma Scientific Foundation: “Development of an everolimus delivery system based on biodegradable nanospheres in order to limit neointimal hyperplasia following implantation of a coronary stent”. So far the scientific team of the Research and Development Centre has completed the following projects awarded grants:
  • Evaluation of efficacy and safety of local intracoronary paclitaxel delivery using a transport catheter to prevent restenosis after stent implantation in a porcine model.Grant number: NN-6-247/05.
  • Evaluation of the effect of intracoronary adiponectin delivery during acute ischaemia/reperfusion in a porcine myocardial infarction model. Grant number: NN-6-293/06.
  • Evaluation of the effect of intracoronary abciximab delivery during acute ischaemia/reperfusion in a porcine myocardial infarction model. Number of statutory grant SUM: KNW -10 - 94/07.
In addition, we have completed, or are carrying out, a number of pre-clinical and clinical studies evaluating new devices and treatment methods for cardiovascular diseases. In 2006 we received an award from the “European Working Group on Interventional Cardiology” for a study entitled  “Biodegradable polymer coated paclitaxel eluting stents in porcine coronary 

Example research projects being carried out currently or planned by the R&D Centre cover the following areas:
  • structural heart defects (occluder devices),
  • electrostimulation (novel electrodes for programmed stimulation),
  • preventing restenosis in coronary and peripheral arteries (new generation DES stents, balloons coated with anti-proliferative substances), interventional treatment of refractory hypertension (renal denervation),
  • preventing reperfusion lesions,
  • pathophysiological aspects of coronary atheromatosis and aortic valve stenosis,
  • regeneration of cardiac muscle and biomaterials.

About the American Heart of Poland SA Research and Development Centre


The Research and Development Centre (R&D Centre) within the structure of AHP was established as the initiative of Professor Pawe? Buszman in cooperation with young doctors and students and institutions promoting and developing new technologies applied in medicine.

The R&D Centre is owned by American Heart of Poland SA, a company that established a network of modern facilities for invasive cardiology, cardiac surgery and vascular surgery in Poland. Funds for the development of current scientific activity carried out at AHP, and for the establishment of the R&D Centre (PLN 18 million) were granted under the Innovative Economy Operational Programme 2007-2013, Measure 4.5,  Support for investments of great importance to the economy, Sub-measure 4.5.2., Support for investments in the sector of modern services.

The establishment of the R&D Centre was inspired by the rapid development in medical technologies, particularly in interventional cardiology, that require pre-clinical and clinical studies to be carried out, as well as for ongoing education for medical professionals.

With modern equipment and highly qualified personnel, including interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, vascular surgeons and pathomorphologists, we carry out and plan new high-quality research focused on the implementation of new techniques in everyday clinical practice.

Treatments

Medical Services Offered At American Heart Of Poland Medical Center

Cardiological treatment at PAKS is designed for cardiac disease prevention, therapy, enhancing the high quality of life, restriction of disease development and also lowering the degree of mortality caused by cardiac disease. Additionally, it allows quick physical recuperation and returning back to work in shorter period of time after cardiological and cardiosurgical intervention methods.

Cardiological Rehabilitation

The PAKS Cardiological Rehabilitation Therapy has three stages:

1. Hospital Rehabilitation is introduced as soon as the patient is stabilized. PAKS aims at preventing immobilization, restoring the patient’s full self-care efficiency and improving his/her psychological condition. This stage is carried out by the highest class specialist.

2. Improving patient’s health and psycho-physical skills and introducing the rules of cardiac disease secondary prevention. This prevention stage is customized to each patient. This is performed in Ustro? Spa („Uzdrowisko Ustro?”*).

3. Outpatient and sanatorium care is aimed at maintaining previous therapeutic effects and continuation of pro-health life style (specialized doctor consultations) ,in American Heart of Poland Clinics and stay in Health Resort „Równica”.

PAKS Cardiosurgery

The treatment plan is customized for each patient of Heart Clinics by the highest class professional group of American Heart of Poland Clinics.

Cardiosurgery

The First Cardiosurgery Department of American Heart of Poland Clinics in Bielsko- Bia?a was created under the project of building a Research and Development Centre, co-financed from the European Union resources.

Services offered by Cardiosurgery Department

Opening of the Research and Development Centre of American Heart of Poland

13 June 2012 – American Heart of Poland (AHP) has officially opened its Research and Development Centre (CBR), the only such centre for pre-clinical and clinical research in Poland. At this centre the latest medical discoveries get a chance for safe move from a laboratory to an operating theatre where they can save lives of patients with cardiovascular diseases.

The research team led by Professor Pawe? Buszman, Associate Professor Wojciech Wojakowski and Dr Krzysztof Milewski, tests at the CBR new medical devices, drugs and methods of treating cardio-vascular diseases. The work includes, for example, local administration of drugs in the treatment of arteriosclerosis and restenosis prevention, latest methods of preventing post reperfusion damage in heart attacks and methods of heart muscle and vessels regeneration after a heart attack. Methods of repair and laparoscopic implantation of heart valves, new intra-vascular stents and innovative methods of treating hypertension are also developed and tested.

Revolutionary procedure at American Heart of Poland Clinic in Ustro?

12 September 2012 – on 5 September, doctors from American Heart of Poland (AHP) carried out a procedure consisting in implanting bio-absorbable stents, which are completely dissolved in the patient’s body. It was the first such commercially performed procedure in Poland and one of the few ever conducted in the world. The first patients received this revolutionary vascular diseases treatment at the centre in Ustro?. 

A team of specialists from American Heart of Poland in Ustro?, led by Dr Marek Król, performed a coronary angioplasty in a 55-year old man diagnosed with unstable angina pectoris. The morbidly changed coronary vessels have been widened by implanting two bioabsorbable stents manufactured by Abbott Vascular.
