ILLNESSES DIAGNOSED AND TREATED:

Our clinic diagnoses and treats all types of cardiovascular diseases.

Coronary: In the last five years, we have performed 15000 diagnostic and treatment procedures. The number of annual coronary angiographies is 3000. Our clinic performs approximately 1500 coronary interventions a year; interventions such as bifurcation, unprotected main coronary, and grafts are routine procedures. The mortality rate regarding coronary interventions at the hospital is one every five years. The mortality rate for emergency surgery is three (due to two acute tamponades and two acute occlusions). These rates are significantly below world standards.

Congenial Heart Diseases: We close the holes in the heart, present since birth (atrial septal defect-ASD, ventricular septal defect-VSD, patent ductus arteriosus, and coarctation of the aorta) using a percutan (entering from the groin), before surgery. We are one of the three centers that carry out the most adult procedures in Turkey (the other two are state hospitals). Our annual ASD figure is between 50 and 60, while our annual number of VSD is 15.

Mitral Valvuloplasty: Thirty cases are addressed at our center every year. In only one case surgery was performed four days late due to an acute cordial rupture; the other cases were a complete success. Paravalvuler leak is closed with percutaneous closer device.

Peripheral Vascular Impairment: Stent applications are available for the narrowing of the carotid artery, the subclavian artery, the renal artery, and the iliac artery. The number of interventions per year is 200. We carry out ablation during arrhythmia treatment. Intra-cardiac defibrillator and bi-ventricular ICD or CRT is carried out.

All the modern devices are used in the hypertension and heart failure units; hemofiltration applications are applied in resistant cases.

Hot weather and Cardiac Diseases

Our body requires a particular temperature range in order to survive. Our body temperature should be constant at 36.6 C in order to normally maintain our bodily functions. Several body temperature regulating mechanisms are activated depending on variation at temperature of outer environment, and thus, change of body temperature is avoided. Sweating and vaporization of sweat ensures heat loss of body.
