Coronary Angiography Services




Why Should Coronary Angiography Be Performed?

Early diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease, especially those with cardiac risk factors, are of vital importance. The goal is to protect the person from the consequences of a possible heart attack. For this reason, it is necessary to perform a diagnostic procedure called coronary angiography in order to confirm the diagnosis in patients with suspected coronary artery disease due to cardiological examinations such as ECG (echocardiography) and ECG (treadmill).

What is Coronary Angiography?

Coronary angiography is a diagnostic method and not an operation type.

Coronary angiography is the process of taking a specific drug into the coronary arteries (coronary artery) and taking images using a special imaging system.

It is performed in coronary angiography, angiography equipment, and in advanced laboratories where the medical staff and the trained-experienced cardiologist are available.

There is no need for the patient to be awake for the operation, the patient can be awake and speak during the procedure.

In Which Situations Does Coronary Angiography Perform?

• For people with chest pain (angina), a risk factor for coronary artery disease,

• In those who have a heart attack,

• If you have previously undergone coronary intervention (balloon-stent) or coronary artery surgery and chest pain has recurred,

• In survivors of sudden death,

• For people who have heart surgery (heart valve) other than coronary artery disease,

• In those who will have non-cardiac artery surgery,

• In those who have severe life-threatening rhythm disturbances,

• Cardiac vessels should be visualized by coronary angiography in patients at risk for abnormalities in non-interventional tests (ECG, echocardiography or ECG).

In our cardiology clinic, there are clinical and cardiovascular diseases (outpatient and outpatient services), entrepreneurial cardiology clinics (angiography, coronary, peripheric arterial intervention), pacemaker implantation (non-invasive diagnostic units) echocardiography laboratory, effort test, stress thallium test) are available at our hospital.

All of our patients with cardiovascular disease are being examined and treated in our clinic. Patients with hypertension, coronary artery disease (ischemic heart disease), arrhythmia patients, heart failure patients, heart valve diseases, adult patients with congenital heart disease are examined and treated with our modern facilities.

In addition, our physicians also provide services to provide informative information on preventive and risk factors.

Our aim is to provide diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular patients with current and contemporary methods and to provide the best services to our patients with scientific and modern hospital applications. In addition, we perform non-sick people 's stimulation and training in terms of heart health in the framework of our preventive medicine principles.

In our cardiology policlinic, we can take 15 years old and 16 years old and / or older illnesses.
