Cardiovascular Surgery

Today, the largest complaints that threaten human health are experienced within the heart and its organs. For this reason, death rates from heart-related diseases are increasing over the years. Cardiovascular surgery is the unit that has early detection of diseases caused by three vessels that affect the functioning of the guts, still as cardiac diseases, and performs surgical operation. By using the latest possibilities of contemporary medicine, the patient's health is ensured with the foremost appropriate surgical methods determined in step with the requirements of the patient.


Cardiovascular surgery works in coordination with other units in order that the patient can return to his normal life without losing time. In particular, the contributions of the anesthesia and physiotherapy units increase the success rate of the surgical intervention and ensure the patient's comfort within the postoperative period.


Surgical Treatment Methods for Cardiovascular Diseases

Surgical interventions as cardiovascular surgery are as follows:

  • Robotic Surgeons

With the developing modern medicine, robotic surgery has become a frequently used method in heart surgeries, especially in recent years. coronary bypass surgery surgery is one among them. rhythm disorders, closing the holes within the heart with a patch also can be performed with robotic surgery.

  • Minimally Invasive Interventions

Minimally invasive interventions are procedures that are generally performed endovascularly, that is, with endovascular intervention, without the necessity to open body cavities as in surgeries. It is often utilized in the treatment of vascular diseases like aneurysm and varicose in suitable patients.

  • Open Surgery

Open surgeries are procedures within which the surgeon accesses the operation area and performs the operation without using any video system.


Cardiovascular Diseases

Diseases that may be treated using cardiovascular surgery are as follows:

  • Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary arteries could also be occluded spontaneously or may develop thanks to hereditary factors. These blockages can cause chest pains or heart attacks over time. In arterial blood vessel diseases where surgical intervention is required, treatment is administered by applying the by-pass procedure.


  • Heart Valve Diseases

It develops thanks to disorders within the functions of the center valves. Generally, stenosis of the center valve or insufficiency of the center valve is observed thanks to structural problems.


  • Congenital Heart Diseases

Congenital heart diseases are diseases which will be diagnosed by ultrasonography while within the womb. Echocardiography performed while the baby is within the womb are often screened for possible heart diseases.


Congenital heart diseases detected during the examinations will be treated with a variety of surgical interventions that may be planned within the womb or after birth.


  • Heart Rhythm Disorders

The cardiac muscle (sinus node), located on the proper atrium wall of the center, controls the electrical system of the center. Rhythm disorders caused by problems within the conduction system of the center can cause complaints like palpitation and fainting in patients, but will be diagnosed by physical examination and electrocardiography.
