In the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, open surgery, closed, endovascular methods as well as minimally invasive (with small incision) methods and robotic surgery are applied in adult cardiovascular diseases. High-risk patients can also be treated with a multidisciplinary approach, with technology-friendly and personalized methods. The Cardiovascular Surgery departments of Uniqacare follow and implement all related academic and technological studies, as well as work to raise awareness about cardiovascular health.
What is cardiovascular surgery (CVC)?
Since the heart is a vital organ, it must be protected and observed. The heart, which takes its place in the circulatory system, can be heavily affected even by minor damage. This vital organ, which is so important for human health and life, collects carbon dioxide from all tissues in the body. It is also responsible for the removal of metabolic wastes. Cardiovascular Surgery and Cardiovascular Surgery, also known as cardiovascular surgery, is the general name of the operations performed on the heart and four major vessels and peripheral vessels by cardiovascular surgeons. The reason for undergoing cardiovascular surgery (CVC) is that the treatment of the problem detected in the heart or veins as a result of the patient's examinations is not sufficient to solve with drugs or other methods. In this case, there should be no need to worry. Because in the Cardiovascular Surgery (CVC) departments, these surgeries are performed in the safest way with experienced teams, advanced technology devices and multidisciplinary approaches
What are cardiovascular diseases?
Heart rhythm problems
Congenital heart anomalies
Heart valve diseases
Coronary artery disease
Heart muscle disease.
Peripheral artery disease
Deep vein thrombosis
What are the diseases treated by cardiovascular surgery?
In the most comprehensive way, all diseases related to the heart and blood vessels are included in the field of cardiovascular surgery. The main diseases that cardiovascular surgery or cardiovascular surgery deals with are as follows;
Heart valve diseases
Coronary artery disease
Diseases of the veins and arteries
Adjustment vein occlusions
Carotid artery occlusions
What are the procedures applied in cardiovascular surgery?
It is a surgical method performed when there is narrowing or occlusion in the coronary arteries that supply the heart. The operation is performed by preparing veins such as the leg, forearm artery and chest artery and transplanting them to the patient area.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Return to daily life becomes easier with small incision surgeries that preserve the integrity of the chest wall. The operation is performed with an incision under the breast or armpit without opening the sternum (board of faith) of the patient. Less blood loss, less risk of infection and smaller incisions, after this operation, reduces the negative psychological effects to a great extent, as the visual disturbance is kept at a minimal level.
Robotic Heart Surgery
Da Vinci Robotic Surgery, also known as robotic technology, can be successfully applied in surgeries such as bypass, heart valve replacement, and closure of the heart hole. Robotic surgery and heart surgeries provide significant advantages by increasing the patient's recovery speed and comfort.
Hemodialysis Access Surgery
It can be defined as the surgical method to be applied to enter the dialysis process in individuals with kidney failure or chronic kidney failure. The patient is allowed to enter dialysis through his own vein without a catheter
Valve Repair and Replacement Surgeries
All problems related to the aortic, tricuspid or mitral valve can be treated with a multidisciplinary approach and minimally invasive methods.
Surgical Treatments of Aortic Aneurysms, Aortic Dissection and Rhythm Disorders
2-3 cm in diameter stents can be successfully placed in the aortic vessel in large aortic vessel surgeries. This process is carried out together with the Interventional Radiology department.
Varicose Vein Treatments
Doppler examination is performed to determine the most suitable method for the patient in the treatment of varicose veins. In this way, important information about the person's veins is also obtained. Accordingly, methods such as surgery, interventional treatments, sclerotherapy, stripping, intravascular thermal ablation (laser), intravascular foam sclerotherapy are applied in the treatment of varicose veins.
Heart Tumor Treatments
Open surgery, minimally invasive surgery or robotic surgery can be applied in heart tumors that occur in the heart or heart valves. The method is determined according to the patient's condition.
Peripheral Vascular Surgery
It is the process of bypassing (opening the blockage) by removing the patient's own vein or by artificial graft (artificial graft) especially in cases of arterial occlusions in the legs. The patient's complaints of redness, bruising, pain and coldness caused by arterial occlusion disappear.
Peripheral Invasive Procedures
The patient complains of coldness, pain, and difficulty in walking as a result of stenosis and obstruction in the leg veins. It is defined as a peripheral invasive procedure to open the occluded or narrow vein in the legs by opening a vascular access in the groin without open surgery and by applying a balloon or stent to the vein with the angiography method. There is no wound site compared to open surgery. It is done by entering the vein with a needle. The hospital stay is much shorter. The bleeding risk and infection rate are low.
