Cardiac diseases remain as number one killer in both developed and developing countries. Recent researches have shown that heart diseases are no longer considered as a disease that affects just men. Women especially over 50 are also at high risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.
Recent advances in cardiology and cardiovascular surgery opened new horizons in treatment methods of these disorders with both with surgical and non-surgical way. Non-surgical and minimally invasive surgical procedures are getting more and more popular. This not only about a shorter hospitalization time. Cardiac Surgery with sub-axillary incision offers great post-operative advantages to the patients:
While it decreases the morbidity and mortality due to major open surgery, patient satisfaction and life quality improves after surgery. Diagnostic angiography, angioplasties including stent placement to occluded coronary vessels, removal of plaque at the site of the narrowing of the artery (atherectomy) are the most conducted non-surgical procedures performed by qualified cardiologists known in their field. By-pass surgery in working heart and robotic cardiac surgery are successfully performed in many advanced and internationally accredited cardiovascular centers throughout Turkey.
Correct detection of the problem is crucial when planning the cardiologic treatment. The angiography performed by specialized doctors in our team therefore has a lot of importance for the success of the treatment.
