Cardiology is an integral and important structure in such a multidisciplinary surgical center as the Pirogov National Medical and Surgical Center. The Department of Cardiology “keeping up with the times” continuously develops and improves, continuing the traditions established since the opening of the clinic of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, and developing in new directions. Following the oldest principle of medicine “primum non nocere” (literally: “first of all - do no harm), the cardiology department works in close connection with related departments working in the framework of the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, which is the most effective way to provide care truly patient-oriented. The article briefly consecrated the main directions of work of the Department of Cardiology in the structure of the Pirogov National Medical and Surgical Center.

Keywords: Department of Cardiology, Cardiooncology, Thromboembolic Complications, Anticoagulation Therapy.
