CARDIOVASCULAR



Cardiovascular Surgery is the surgical procedure performed by surgeons specialized in these areas. Cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of death in Turkey and in the world.

With advances in medicine, these diseases can now be diagnosed early in all those who regularly perform their checks.

If you are suffering from cardiovascular diseases requiring surgical treatment, Mugla Yücelen Hospital Cardiovascular Surgery Clinic is at your service with its experienced team of seven days.

Major Applications of Cardiovascular Surgery Clinic

• CORONARY BYPASS: The heart cannot be fed sufficiently when there is constriction or obstruction in the coronary vessels that feed the heart. If the blood flow in the veins is below the level, a heart attack will occur and the heart will be damaged. Coronary bypass operation is performed with open heart surgery to prevent cardiac muscle damage. Bypass procedure is applied by connecting the vessel taken from another part of the body to the occluded vessel.

• HEART COVER REPAIR AND CHANGE OPERATIONS: In the case of heart valves (aortic, mitral, tricuspid, pulmonary valve) failure or failure of the heart valves, repair or replacement operations may be necessary. In the exchange process, artificial or animal biological heart valves are used. Artificial valves are more durable, but they require a lifelong anticoagulant drug because they cause clots. These drugs may cause bleeding. Biological capillaries do not require medication, but the life of the cap is shorter and should be replaced by a new operation seven to seven years later.

• AORTIC ANEURYSM OPERATIONS: Aortic heart from the heart and clean blood from the body is the main artery. The ascending aorta of the aorta from the heart and immediately after the arcus aorta is called arcus aorta. In these regions of the aortic vessel, there may be pouch shaped abnormal enlargements called aneurysms. Aneurysms must be treated surgically because of the risk of rupture.

• LEFT VENTRICULAR ANEURYSIS REPAIRS: When a balloon-shaped cross section of the left ventricular muscle with the left lower chamber of the heart is performed, surgery is performed according to the size and characteristics of the aneurysm.

• PERIPHERAL VASCULAR SURGERY: Peripheral artery is the artery that feeds all other tissues and organs in the body except the heart and brain. Peripheral vascular disease is often used for leg vein disease. Peripheral bypass or endarterectomy is used in the treatment of peripheral vascular disease. In bypass surgery, blood flow is restored by taking a bridge from other parts of the body or by an artificial vein. In the case of endarterectomy, the plaque layer causing the occlusion in the vein is cleared.

• CAROTIC SURGERY: Carotid artery is the main vein that provides blood flow to the brain. Carotid endarterectomy is performed in surgery which is accepted as the gold standard in carotid artery stenosis if the stenosis and stenosis of the shah vessel are not treatable. Surgery is performed under local anesthesia when the patient is awake. The operation performed in the operation is to remove the plaque that causes the stenosis through the vein and to enlarge the narrowed vein according to the diameter of the vessel, if necessary by placing a patch. The patients were discharged on average for 2 days.
