The increasing number of cardiovascular diseases is among the top causes of death and their diagnosis and treatment should be performed by experienced physicians in fully equipped hospitals with advanced medical technologies.
The Heart Care Centers of the Saglik Hospital competes on a world class level to provide the most modern heart care in Turkey. Saglik Hospital uses state-of-the-art technological equipment for the early diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
Congenital cardiac diseases are the most common of anomalies developed in the womb. Congenital cardiac diseases account for fifteen percent of infant deaths in the first 30 days of the neonatal period.
Eight babies out of one thousand are born with congenital heart disease. This is equivalentto 1 percent of live births.
There exist a wide variety of pediatric cardiac diseases. Specialists categorize pre-natal cardiac diseases into three:
Congenital cardiac diseases
Rheumatic cardiac diseases
Heart Valve Diseases:
Appropriate treatment in severe heart valve diseases is surgical repair of the valve or replacement of the valve with an appropriate prosthetic valve. The type and timing of surgical intervention for the heart valve varies according to the nature of the valve defect.
Surgical Intervention in Rhythm Disorders:
Rhythm disturbances seen in some coronary artery disease or heart valve diseases can be treated by interventions to the abnormal conduction source during the operation. In these applications, laser - radiofrequency waves are applied to abnormal rhythm and conducting regions and Cryo Ablation (freezing cold application) method is used.
Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery:
When appropriate and necessary, some coronary artery and heart valve operations can beperformed under small incisions and without stopping the heart with advanced technological equipment.
In addition, Congenital Heart Diseases, Peripheral (Arm, Chest-Abdominal And Leg) Vascular Diseases surgical applications are performed.
Surgical methods used in addition to drug treatments in patients with varicose veins:
-Stripping and Mini Phlebotomies: Surgical removal of the disrupted vessel segment undersmall incisions. Incisions; leg is usually done in the groin area, knee and below the knee. Itis cosmetically important that incisions are small and sometimes do not require stitches.
-Laser and Radiofrequency Ablation: It is a method of placing a catheter that produces laser or radiofrequency waves into the varicose vein segment and thus destroying and closing the vessel wall. The closed varicose vein disappears after a while.
-Sclerotherapy and Foam Therapy: Varicose varices can be treated with intravenous injections. The material delivered by injection causes the vascular wall to adhere to destruction. The vessel with the lumen closed and occluded disappears after a while.
Fistula Operations and Catheter Applications for Dialysis;
-Patients with chronic renal failure require a high flow rate vessel to connect to the hemodialysis unit
-This need is usually provided by Arteriovenous Fistula operations that create a relationship and transition between the arteries and veins.
-In some cases, temporary and permanent catheters placed in deep veins are used and followed up for patients to enter hemodialysis.
