Cardiology Clinics  provide diagnosis and treatment services for diseases including heart attacks, coronary failures, heart failures, cardiac rhythm and conduction disorders, diseases of the cardiac valves, peripheral arterial diseases, aortic diseases, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and congenital heart diseases.

    The operations in our Cardiology Clinics are undertaken in accordance with the purpose of protecting cardiac health, and providing diagnosis and treatment services for heart diseases, within the framework of global medical standards. These works are backed by cardiac rehabilitation, cardiac intensive care and angiography laboratory. Our cardiology departments also provide services in the fields of arrhythmia and cardiac electrophysiology, invasive cardiology and non-invasive cardiology. We maintain a special patient database, and carry out quality control studies pertaining to operations.

    Hundreds of invasive cardiac procedures and more than 4.000  angiographies are performed every year in our unitsOur cardiology service is operational with 2 associate professor,1 assistant professor,8 cardiology specialists and 5 assistant doctors. We have a coronary intensive care unit with 15 beds, 2 cardiology inpatient services with 40 bed capacity in total, with 2 coronary angiography devices ( SIEMENS) ,1 echocardiography device that enables three dimensional displays and 2 treadmill ECG devices which provides service to both outpatients and inpatients. Our cardiology units are principally equipped by cutting edge devices to make diagnosis of, monitor and follow up heart diseases.

    In 2018, 4698 patients were hospitalized and treated in our cardiology inpatient clinics and 57797 patients were registered to our outpatients policlincs.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may have a more serious condition and should see a doctor immediately:

                -Heart palpitation

                -Shortness of breath

                -Nausea and dizziness

                -Pain in left arm
 -Sudden cold sweats
 -Chest pain( the chest pain that lasts longer than a few minutes or goes  away and then returns)

Procedures implemented in our Cardiology Clinics may be summarized as follows:

Non-invasive procedures:

  • Disease risk assessment and disease screening
  • Effort test (Treadmill stress test)
  • 2-D, 3-D, doppler and color doppler echocardiography
  • Stress echocardiography
  • 24 hour ECG and 24 hour blood pressure monitoring
  • Calcium screening with multidetector CT
  • CT coronary angiography
  • Myocardial scintigraphy

Invasive procedures:

  • Transesophageal echocardiography
  • Coronary Angiography
  • Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA)  and Stenting
  • Temporary Pacemakers
  • Pacemakers
  • Electrophysiological study
  • Catheter Ablation
  • Mitral Balloon (Valvuloplasty)
  • Cardiac Catheterization
  • Opening of chronic totally occluded arteries
  • Non-surgical Treatment of Aortic Stenosis (TAVI)
  • Non-surgical treatment in heart holes
  • Non-surgical vessel repair – Peripheral arterial investigations
  • All related emergency procedures

  Coronary angiography, angioplasty and temporary or permanent pacemaker implantations as well as invasive radiology procedures not only save life of patients, but they also improve quality of life of patients. 


    The diagnostic methods used in heart diseases

Electrocardiogram (ECG): The ECG machine records electrical functions created in the heart, in order to examine the working of neural conducting systems of the heart muscle. ECG is helpful for the diagnosis of heart diseases ehen it is evaluated together with the findings and dysfunctions detected by the doctor during examination and other tests and graphs were also taken into consideration. It has an indispensable importance especially for the diagnosis of cardiovascular obstructions, rhythm disorders, heart valve disorders and heart failure.

Exercise Stres Test: To evaluate the heart’s response to excercises. Used to evaluate how your heart and blood vessels react to physical activity.

Chest X-ray: It gives the information about the position and dimensions of the heart and whether there is congestion in the lungs or not.

Echocardiography ( ECHO) : ECHO is a painless test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of your heart. The pictures show the size and shape of your heart. They also show how well your heart's chambers and valves are working. Echo also can pinpoint areas of heart muscle that aren't contracting well because of poor blood flow or injury from a previous heart attack. A type of echo called Doppler Ultrasound shows how well blood flows through your heart's chambers and valves. Echo can detect possible blood clots inside the heart, fluid buildup in the pericardium (the sac around the heart), and   problems with the aorta. The aorta is the main artery that carries oxygen-rich blood from your heart to your body.

Rhythm Holter : Holter is used to research heart rhythm disorder. The device is worn on the patient and records  of heart activity for 24-48 hours, while you do your normal daily activities.

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring devices: ABPMs are also small portable devices and they measure your blood pressure  with certain intervals when you are  on the basic of  living daily life. It is normally carried over 24 hours on body.

Myocardial Perfusion Scintigraphy( MPS): MPS is a non-invasive imaging test that shows how well blood perfuses  through your heart muscle. It is a nuclear imaging technique. It is being done to investigate whether there is a problem with the blood supply to the heart muscle.

Coronary Angiography: Coronary angiography is done during cardiac catheterization. X-ray visible contrast  dye is injected through the catheter. X-ray images show the dye as it flows through the heart arteries.This shows where the arteries are blocked.
