Koru Health Group Prof. Dr. Ahmet Sonel Cardiac Center provides services in adult and pediatric cardiovascular diseases with Cardiovascular Surgery and Cardiology branches.
In addition, the “Arrhythmia Follow-up Polyclinic” within the Cardiology Clinic, and the “Vascular Diseases Polyclinic” within the Cardiovascular Surgery Polyclinic provide treatment services.
In our hospital, comprehensive diagnosis and treatment applications in the field of cardiology are offered to our patients in the polyclinic, as a day hospitalization and, when necessary, by hospitalization.
Organizing the patient examinations and treatments,
Cardiology Diagnostic Tests:
Electrocardiography (ECG), Stress ECG, 2D and 3D Echocardiography (ECHO), transesophageal ECHO (TEE), Stress-ECHO,
Cardiology Advanced Diagnostic Tests:
Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS), positron emission tomography (PET), 3D CT Coronary angiography (virtual coronary angiography), 24-hour rhythm Holter recording, ECG event recorder, Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM), Tilttable test (tilting table test),
Pacemaker check and follow (each pacemaker has a different controller)
With out-patient follow-up (outpatient services), we provide services on hypertension, coronary cardiac and vascular diseases, cardiac valve diseases, lipid disorders, rhythm disorders (arrhythmia), cardiac failure, and follow-up of pacemakers.
Our services with same-day hospitalization
The follow-up service offers advanced diagnostic tests such as conventional coronary angiography (true coronary angiography, CAG) and electrophysiological study (mapping methods of the electrical system of the heart, EPS).
Our in-patient (cardiology service and intensive care unit) services
Our Cardiology Department offers 24-hour emergency service, coronary intensive care unit, and in-patient services. In our Cardiology Department, all the beds are monitored by the central monitor system.
In general, hospitalizations are made for procedural purposes that require a 1-day hospitalization or for longer medical follow-up.
Our Interventional Cardiology Procedures:
Balloon-stent applications to coronary and peripheral vessels:
Cardiac angiography is the imaging of the coronary arteries by means of a drug by reaching the cardiac vessels through thin plastic tubes, usually from your inguinal (femoral) or wrist (radial) vein. The purpose of coronary angiography is only to make the diagnosis. It is done to evaluate whether there is stenosis in the vessels or not. If stenosis is detected, this stenosis can be opened with the help of a balloon-stent in the same session. This procedure is called percutaneous coronary intervention, or namely, angioplasty and stenting.
Right and left cardiac catheterization, hemodynamic evaluation
2 and 3 dimensional electrophysiological studies (EPS) and ablation therapy applications (with RF or cryo energy):
The most important of the tests used for the diagnosis of rhythm disorders is the electrophysiological study (EPS: ElectroPhysiological Study). EPS is a diagnostic test performed to find the cause of the abnormal rhythm in the heart. Similar to EPS cardiac catheterization and angiography, it is performed only with local anesthesia applied to the inguinal and/or neck region, and in some special cases, with general anesthesia. Ablation treatment is the process of removing the area with rhythm disorder after EPS procedure, usually by giving radiofrequency energy. In other words, it is a permanent therapeutic procedure.
The probability of success in the treatment of rhythm disorders in the form of rapid beating of the heart with catheter ablation varies between 70% and 95%, depending on the type of palpitation targeted for treatment and the location of the short circuit.
Our procedures for inserting temporary pacemakers and permanent pacemakers under fluoroscopy (pacemaker, ICD (Defibrillator) and CRT (cardiac failure pacemaker):
Pacemakers are electronic devices that create and regulate the rhythm of the heart in case the heart cannot generate enough electrical stimulation and/or cannot adequately deliver it to the entire cardiac tissue. While its initial purpose was to treat the disorders that develop as a result of the slow beating of the heart, it has also been used in rapid rhythm disorders (anti-tachycardia batteries, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators with automatic shock devices [ICD]) and cardiac failure (biventricular batteries heart synchronization therapy, CRT) in recent years. These treatments are applied by our highly experienced clinicians in our department.
Percutaneous closure of congenital cardiac cavities without open surgery (percutaneous ASD, VSD, PDA, PFO)
Opening of subsequently developing valve stenosis (Mitral and pulmonary valvuloplasty)
Medical and dialysis ultrafiltration application (UF), hemofiltration application
Our coronary intensive care and clinical service medical follow-up services:
At our coronary intensive care unit, patients requiring emergency intervention due to cardiovascular disease (heart attack, heart blocks, life-threatening rhythm disorders, serious valve diseases) are followed up and treated. Cardiac failure and other heart diseases that do not need intensive care are followed up in the service.
Infrastructure and Hardware:
8-bed coronary intensive care unit
2 Electrocardiography devices
4 Echocardiography devices
1 Multiplane Transesophageal Echocardiography device
1 Effort test
5 ambulatory blood pressure monitoring devices (ABPM)
5 Ambulatory rhythm monitoring devices (HOLTER)
2 Coronary angiographies, 1 electrophysiology laboratory
Without patient follow-up, even the best treatments and practices cannot reach their goals. Patients for whom interventional or medical treatment is arranged should come for a check-up at regular intervals and should ensure that their medications are reviewed after the examination and examination.
Disease prevention should come before treatment. Many vascular diseases are associated with improper diet, inactivity, and behavioral misconceptions.
Do not wait to be ill to control yourself and make appropriate plans.
