Andreas Grüntzig Clinical Research Center

What was previously considered impossible was achieved for the first time by the young physician and researcher Dr. Andreas R. Grüntzig on September 16, 1977, at Zurich University Hospital. He dilated the narrowed coronary arteries of the patient Dölf Bachmann, who was at risk of heart attack, using a balloon catheter (PTCA) that he had developed. The Andreas Grüntzig Clinical Research Center (AGCRC) was founded in his honor.
