About the Department of Cardiology at Medical Park Gebze Hospital

The Department of Cardiology at the Medical Park Gebze Hospital offers the top-class diagnostics and treatment for patients with cardiovascular diseases. The primary focus of the specialists is on the provision of medical care to people with coronary artery disease. Due attention is also paid to the diagnostics and treatment of atherosclerosis, heart arrhythmias. The department has created all conditions for optimal patient care – the best equipment, many effective treatment methods, experienced and talented doctors. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Ömer Yiğiner.

The department's cardiologists specialize in diagnostic coronary angiography in the cases of suspected coronary artery disease. This procedure is used for coronary artery imaging. Prior to this manipulation, the patient will be necessarily injected a contrast agent intravenously. The coronary angiography is carried out in state-of-the-art laboratory with special equipment, without anesthesia. To ensure access to the coronary arteries, the department's cardiologists puncture the right femoral artery. Prior to artery puncture, the doctors anesthetize the inguinal region, after which they insert a plastic catheter into the artery. At this stage, the patient may experience slight pain. The next step is the insertion of a conductor through a plastic catheter that gradually moves through the vascular system to the coronary arteries, into which the contrast agent is injected. This allows the doctor to imagine coronary arteries in various projections and to determine the localization and severity of stenosis.

The department also has progressive Electrophysiology Laboratories, which are responsible for the comprehensive diagnostics of arrhythmias. The department treats arrhythmias using radiofrequency ablation.

  • Diagnostics and treatment of coronary artery disease
