About the department

The Department of Cardiology offers the full range of comprehensive diagnostics and treatment of cardiac diseases. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Nuri Kurtoğlu.

The admission of patients is carried out 24 hours a day. The department has been operating since 1992, and during this time more than 100,000 patients have been treated here. Cardiac diseases are successfully diagnosed and treated with the help of the very latest high-tech medical devices, for example, the Laboratory for Invasive Cardiology is equipped with an ultramodern Siemens angiography system used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

The doctors of the department specialize in the procedures to detect stenosis and thrombosis of cardiac vessels with angiography and restoration of their patency with a balloon or stent implantation, non-surgical closure of some congenital heart defects, non-surgical stent implantation of the enlarged aorta, implantation of the permanent pacemakers, treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders using ablation, etc.

Special attention should be given to the department's diagnostic options, such as four accurate 3D echocardiography systems (including those for transesophageal echocardiography and stress echocardiography), nine Holter monitors for the diagnostics of cardiac rhythm disorders, five Holter devices for pressure measurement in arterial hypertension, as well as the equipment for cardiac CT, MRI and myocardial scintigraphy (in collaboration with the Departments of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine).
