Pediatric Cardiology Diagnosis and Treatment Procedures
1) Outpatient and Advanced Diagnostic Services: Advanced diagnostic methods such as 2-D, 3-D Echocardiography and TEE (Transoesophageal Echocardiography), CT (Tomography Angio), Angiography and Cardiac MRI are applied in outpatients followed up from the outpatient clinic.
- 2-D and 3-D Echocardiography
- Fetal Echocardiography (Determining the risks of heart disease in the baby before birth)
TEE (Transesophageal Echo) (Enhancing endoscopy-like advanced evaluations of the heart and great vessels by entering through the esophagus)
- Exercise Test (Treadmill Effort Test)
- EKG and Rhythm Holter
- Children’s Sports Performance Measurement and Evaluation Unit (Treadmill Exercise test with respiratory function test)
- CT Angiography and Cardiac MRI (with 3-D reconstruction)
- Biplane Angiography (DSA and 3-D reconstruction with advanced examination methods) for diagnostic purposes
- Angiography procedures for therapeutic purposes
2) Cardiology and CVS Intensive Care Unit Services
- Providing Intraoperative cardiology support, where preoperative and postoperative evaluations are made and actual risks are determined.
- Establishing patient-specific programs and management plans with a short length of stay and minimum mortality/morbidity,
3) Risky Birth Center for Congenital Heart Diseases: With the establishment of close cooperation with gynecology and perinatology centers, early and long-term interventions for pregnancy and newborns are carried out as a reference center where risks are analyzed in and after birth. .
4) Interventional Treatment Unit Services: All procedures performed in other reference centers in the world for interventional treatment are carried out by using advanced technology and devices as a reference center.
– Balloon Angioplasty (Narrowed vessels) /Balloon Valvuloplasty (Narrow valves)
– Stent Applications (Stent application in narrowed areas in the heart or vessels)
– ASD, VSD, PDA Closure (Closing the holes in the heart or between the veins)
– Detection and Closure of Collateral Veins (closure of non-useful veins for the body)
– Implementation of a pacemaker (in rhythm disorders with decreased heart rate)
5) Electrophysiological Studies:
-TEEPS (Transesophageal Electrophysiological Study) study if necessary to detect basic rhythm disorders with EKG and Rhythm Holter
