WHAT IS THE CORONARY ARTERY?

Oxygen and nutrients are very important to protect the vitality of organs in our bodies. Oxygen and nutrients are transported to the organs through arterial blood. Blood is pumped by the heart to the arteries. Nutrition is necessary for heart function. Vessels that supply the heart with blood are named coronary arteries. In the case of illness, the heart’s arteries cannot do its function, resulting in failure of oxygen and nutrition transportation to the body’s organs.

RISK FACTORS FOR CORONORAY ARTERY
DISEASE


Risk factors are as follows;

- Age and gender

- Personal and family history

- Smoking

- Hypertension

- Diabete

- High cholesterol

- Obesity

WHAT IS CORONARY ANGIOGRAPHY?

The coronary angiography application is used mostly through the right groin artery (sometimes the arm) to reach vessels of the heart. To enter the femoral artery, the groin area is first numbed with a needle. After that, a plastic sheath is placed into the vessel. During this process, the patient may sometimes experience slight pain. During the next section of the procedure, the patient does not feel anything.

HOW LONG IS THE CORONARY ANGIOGRAPHY OPERATION?

Operation takes 12-20 minutes. During the process when a catheter is applied, operation takes 30-45 minutes.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THE CORONARY ANGIO?

As all medical procedures, there are some risks associa- ted with coronary angiographies.

AFTER DISCHARGE, WHAT SHOULD BE NOTED?

Within 24 hours after discharge from the hospital, the patient must not use force. After 24 hours, the patient can remove the bandage from the operation area and may take a bath. Sometimes the insertion site may have bruises and hardness caused from infiltration of blood under the skin.

After a few weeks, the bruises should fully pass. If the operation area continues to swell or if the patient suffers severe pain, he or she should immediately go to the hospital.

What are the possible treatments following coronary angiography?


After coronary angiography, cardiology expert doctors will inform the patient about the suggested treatment and will give a report showing the results of application. In case of coronary artery stenosis, according to the severity of tigh- tness and the patient’s clinical status, there can be three methods of treatment:

- Drug treatment.

- Catheter-based applications. Balloon angioplasty or stent applications. Immediately after the coronary angi- ography process and following new process session, the patient can be operated on without anesthesia.

- Coronary bypass: Coronary bypass is a surgical procedure performed to relieve angina and reduce the risk of death from coronary artery diseases. Arteries or veins from elsewhere in the patient’s body are grafted to the coronary arteries to bypass atherosclerotic narrowings and improve the blood supply to the coronary circulation supplying the myocardium (heart muscle). This surgery is usually performed with the heart stopped, necessitating the usage of cardiopulmonary bypass.



CARDIOVASCULAR SURGERY


Our Cardiovascular surgery staff successfully completes operations for inflictions such as: coronary artery disease (by-pass), heart valve disease, vascular occlusion, expansion of blood vessels, heir, congenital heart holes, and wrong developments in the vessel.
Our hospital contains an intensive care unit, which provides postoperative care with maximum protection and precision. In this unit, our patients are monitored conti- nuously from bedside monitors. Our specialist staff can respond and intervene immediately to sudden changes in health status.
