These numbers, and the outcome based on the numerous procedures used to treat different types of heart disease distinguishes the Heart Centre from other institutions in Denmark.  
 
The Heart Centre at Rigshospitalet offers a complex, specialized care programme, which includes: Open heart surgery (coronary bypass procedures and valve surgery), surgery for congenital heart disease, heart (and lung) transplantations, surgery for atrial fibrillation, diagnostic and interventional catheterisation procedures (including a 24-hour service of primary percutaneous coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction), echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, diagnostic and interventional electrophysiology procedures (ablations), permanent pacemaker insertions (including implantable cardiac defibrillators and biventricular pacemakers), percutaneous lead extractions, percutaneous aortic valve insertions and mitral valve repair, stress tests and ECGs. As a unique feature, in autumn 2016 the Rigshospitalet was appointed as the national reference and high-specialized centre in Denmark for all surgery and cardiac catherizations for congenital heart disease as well as intervention in Grown Up Congenital Heart Disease (GUCH).
