We provide professional support in Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery.
In the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, qualified healthcare services are provided in our operating room, postoperative intensive care, service and polyclinic units in line with scientific and technological developments with experienced specialist physicians and assistant health personnel. Adult open heart surgeries, adult vascular surgeries and interventional-angiographic intravenous diagnosis and treatment procedures are performed.
Since the ten-year patency rate in coronary by-pass surgeries is over 95% among open heart surgeries, by-pass is performed primarily using the artery under the left chest (LIMA). In cases where more than one bypass is required, the artery under the right chest (RIMA), arm artery (radial artery) and leg veins (Saphen vein) are used. Minimally invasive (using small incisions) open heart surgeries are also performed in eligible patients.
In heart valve operations, if the structure of the heart valve is suitable for repair, it is first repaired, and in case of unsuitable patients, the heart valve is replaced. Biological heart valves, most commonly metallic heart valves, are also used. Biological heart valves can be used preferably in some patients with an expectation of pregnancy or in advanced age.
In aortic aneurysm / dissection operations, the diseased area is removed and an artificial vessel is placed in its place.
In Occlusive Peripheral Vascular Diseases, the patient’s own vein (saphenous vein), artificial vein or biological vein grafts are used for by-pass.
Carotid artery (carotid artery) stenosis, dilatation and tumors are also treated using the patient’s own vein (saphenous vein) or an artificial patch when necessary.
For patients undergoing dialysis, permanent or temporary dialysis catheter insertion, fistula opening using their own veins or artificial vessels, repair of non-functioning fistulas and closure of excessively enlarged fistulas are performed.
Current treatment methods such as endovascular (intravenous) laser, radiofrequency, steam, glue and foam sclerotherapy are used in the treatment of varicose patients. Varicose patients are discharged on the day of the procedure and can return to their daily life in a short time. In addition, telangiectasias (capillary networks) that become prominent under the skin are also treated for cosmetic purposes.
PRP and stem cell applications are also used in the treatment of obstructive Peripheral Vascular Diseases, especially Buerger’s disease, which have no chance of treatment with surgical and endovascular intervention methods, in order to heal wounds and prevent limb loss.
