About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at the Medipol Mega University Hospital Istanbul offers the full range of diagnostics and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, including rehabilitation measures. The competence also includes resuscitation in the specialized Resuscitation Units. The department deals with the treatment of patients of various age categories, ranging from newborn babies to the elderly. The modern infrastructure, high-tech operating rooms in combination with the exceptional professionalism of the medical personnel create a solid basis for the best treatment result. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Halil Türkoğlu.
The department's operating rooms are equipped with laminar air flow ventilation systems, heart-lung machines, autotransfusion systems and intra-aortic balloon pumps. Once a surgical procedure is completed, the patient will be transferred to the Intensive Care Unit, where each bed is equipped with monitors for hemodynamic indicator control.
The department's cardiac surgeons specialize in operations for congenital heart defects in children. If such pathologies are detected at the stage of intrauterine development, the operation can be performed immediately after birth. If possible, the surgeons perform minimally invasive interventions, which guarantee rapid postoperative recovery and a better cosmetic result. The department also performs hybrid interventions.
Cardiac surgical procedures in adult patients include coronary artery bypass grafting for coronary heart disease, reconstructive surgery and prosthetic heart valve surgery, treatment of aortic aneurysms with endovascular interventions, interventions for heart rhythm disturbances, hybrid surgery, etc.
In addition, the department provides the surgical treatment for impaired peripheral artery patency, as well as varicose veins, using laser and radio frequency technologies. The patients with traumatic injuries of the heart and blood vessels receive urgent treatment. If necessary, the doctors from other specialties (general practitioners, plastic surgeons, and others) are involved in the therapeutic process.
