About Interventional Cardiologist

An interventional cardiologist is a cardiologist specialized in diagnosing and treating cardiovascular diseases, congenital (present at birth) and structural heart conditions through catheter based procedures, such as angioplasty and stenting.

If your cardiologist advises you to undergo an angiogram test to understand in more detail about the blockages in your arteries, then you will have to visit an interventional cardiologist for the same.

Interventional Cardiology is the branch of medicine within the subspecialty of cardiology that uses diagnostic techniques to evaluate the blood pressure and flow in the coronary arteries and chambers of the heart. It also covers the technical procedures and medications to treat abnormalities that impair the function of the cardiovascular system.

An interventional cardiology provides treatment options for various heart and vascular conditions, such as:

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)

About Pediatric Cardiologist

Pediatric cardiologists are specialists who diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and help in prevention of the cardiac (heart) conditions in infants and children. They work with children even since before their birth, through childhood and into adulthood.

Pediatric cardiology is the branch of medicine with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the heart conditions in babies (including unborn babies), children and teenagers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which are the most popular procedures performed by a heart specialist in Turkey?

Following are the most popular procedures performed by a heart specialist in Turkey:

  • Coronary Bypass- Coronary bypass surgery is a procedure that restores blood flow to the muscle of the heart by diverting the blood flow in the heart through a part of a blocked artery. Coronary bypass surgery redirects blood through a portion of the heart's blocked or partly blocked artery.

  • Open Heart Surgery- Heart surgery is a surgery performed on the heart muscle, the valves, the arteries, or the aorta and other large arteries connected to the heart. The word "open-heart surgery" means that you are connected during surgery to a heart-lung bypass machine or bypass pump.

  • Heart Surgery with Small Incision- Minimally invasive cardiac surgery involves making small incisions in the right side of the chest to reach the heart between the ribs, rather than cutting through the breastbone, as is done in open-heart surgery. To treat a range of heart problems, minimally invasive heart surgery may be performed.

  • Heart Operation with Robotic Surgery- Robotic cardiac surgery is a cardiac surgery performed through very small cuts in the chest. Using tiny instruments and robot-controlled tools, surgeons can perform heart surgery in a way that is much less invasive than open-heart surgery.

  • MITRACLIP (Non-Surgical Mitral Valve Failure Repair)- Mitral valve repair is a minimum-invasive, non-surgical operation conducted under general anesthesia where the clamp is inserted into the mitral valve in order to decrease mitral regurgitation (MR) or incompetence.

  • Freezing process in the treatment of atrial fibrillation- Cryoablation is a minimally invasive procedure in which a thin flexible tube, known as a balloon catheter, is used by the EP doctor to locate and freeze this heart tissue. Cryoablation is an appropriate treatment for atrial fibrillation when drugs and other AF treatments do not restore the heart to a normal rhythm.

  • Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) Repair- Surgeons use patches to close the hole using a chest incision. The only way of fixing the atrial defects in the primum, sinus, and coronary sinus is through this operation. This procedure can be conducted with small incisions (less-invasive surgery) and with a robot in some cases of atrial septal defects.

  • Angiography (Including Non-Ionic Contrast)- Angiography is an imaging test that uses X-rays to view your body's blood vessels In non-ionic iodinated contrast media the iodine is bound to an organic (non-ionic) compound and has a low osmolality.

  • Angioplasty- A procedure to restore blood supply into the artery is angioplasty. The doctor threads a thin tube to the involved site in the artery through a blood vessel in the arm or groin. At the top, the tube has a small balloon.

  • Balloon Angioplasty- A technique used to clear narrowed or blocked arteries is balloon angioplasty. It uses a balloon attached to a catheter that is inserted into the artery. The balloon is inflated at the spot where plaque deposits have closed off or narrowed the blood flow path. 

  • Balloon Atrial Septostomy- A balloon atrial septostomy is a procedure that helps your baby's body to get oxygen-rich blood. The foramen ovale is increased by a balloon atrial septostomy (the hole between the left and right atrium). This enables blood to mix from both sides of the heart.

  • Bentall Procedure- The Bentall procedure is an operation to replace part of the heart's aorta and aortic valve with a bulge (aneurysm) in the aorta. The aorta is the great blood vessel (artery) that brings blood to the rest of the body from the heart across the chest and abdomen.

  • CABG – Redo- Redo coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) occurs when native coronary artery disease or graft occlusion progresses in patients who have already undergone CABG, requiring further surgical revascularization.

  • Cardiac Valve Replacement- The repair of transcatheter aortic valves (TAVR) is a minimally invasive operation to replace a small aortic valve that does not open properly (aortic valve stenosis). Doctors insert a catheter into your leg or chest during this procedure and direct it toward your heart.

  • Closed Heart Surgery- The chest wall is opened and the heart muscle is accessed for repair in a closed heart operation. Closed heart surgery is usually done in children rather than in adults. Depending on the defect that needs to be corrected, there are different forms of closed heart surgery.

  • Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)- A surgical technique used to treat coronary heart disease is a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). To increase blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart, it diverts blood around narrowed or clogged areas of the main arteries.

  • EPS & RFA- A study of electrophysiology (EP) is a test conducted to measure the electrical system or operation of the heart and is used to diagnose irregular heartbeats or arrhythmias. The test is performed by inserting catheters and then wire electrodes, which measure electrical activity, through blood vessels entering the heart. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a procedure used to restore the heart to a normal rhythm. A thin wire sends heat during RFA to repair issues with heartbeats.

  • Fontan Procedure- The process of Fontan consists of redirecting blood supply to the lungs from the lower body. The inferior vena cava (IVC) is detached from the heart and directly redirected to the pulmonary artery during the Fontan operation. In general, a wide tube is attached to create a connection, called a "conduit"

  • Heart Double Valve Replacement- Replacing both the mitral and the aortic valve, or the whole left side of the heart is a double valve replacement.

  • Heart Port Surgery- Port-access cardiac surgery, which can provide cardiopulmonary bypass, cardioplegic arrest, myocardial protection, and ventricular decompression, allows a variety of procedures to be performed through smaller, less invasive incisions.

  • ICD Combo Device (Only Surgery)- Small devices the size of a pager are implantable cardioverter defibrillators or ICDs. These are normally inserted under the chest skin to detect irregular cardiovascular rhythms. They are particularly helpful in preventing the death risk in tachycardia-intensive patients.

  • Pacemaker Implantation Surgery- By using the cable, your surgeon will connect an electrode to the right ventricle of your heart. The lower chamber of the heart is the ventricle. A pulse generator is fitted on the other end of the cable. The battery and electrical circuits are included. Your doctor will usually insert the machine under your skin near your collarbone.

  • PDA Closure- The opening (ductus arteriosus) in the womb is a natural part of the circulatory system of an infant, which normally closes shortly after birth. It's called a patent ductus arteriosus if it stays open. Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure is induced by prostaglandin synthesis inhibitor administration, such as indomethacin or aspirin, which is beneficial in premature babies.

  • TAPVC- TAPVR is aimed at restoring the natural flow of blood through the heart. Doctors normally link the pulmonary veins to the left atrium to repair this defect, close any irregular connections between blood vessels, and close the atrial septal defect.
