(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Overview

coronary angiography, otherwise called, a coronary angiogram is a medical procedure utilized to observe within blood vessels and organs in the body.

The technique is generally carried out so as to appropriately diagnose illnesses in regards to arteries, veins, or the chambers of the heart. This technique is from a set of techniques noted as cardiac catheterization. Coronary angiography is among the most popular kinds of cardiac catheterization techniques.

A coronary angiography technique utilizes a particular kind of dye and an X-ray machine to identify heart conditions appropriately. The dye is radio-opaque, implying that it will be entirely noticeable in the X-ray. This provides specialists an opportunity to examine the veins and arteries of the patient. Numerous X-rays are taken throughout a coronary angiography technique – these x-rays are called angiograms. 

Sometimes, specialists may carry out an angioplasty so as to broaden blocked up veins or arteries. A stent may also be placed in particular cases. Because of these causes, coronary angiography is viewed as both a diagnosis technique and a treatment one.

Preparation

The coronary angiography is generally carried out once other non-invasive tests, such as a stress test, echocardiogram or electrocardiogram have been done.

Eating or drinking anything at least 10 hours prior to the coronary angiography is restricted.Some medicinesmay be prescribed for the patient throughoutthis time.

How It Is Performed

Patients will be asked to lie on an X-ray table before being given a sedative and a local anesthetic. A catheter should be placed into the patient’s blood vessels. Specialists can utilize the groin area or the arm for this aim. The incision placeis shaved, washed, and disinfected. Next, the catheter is introduced into the blood vessel, and it is cautiously oriented to the coronary arteries or the heart. A radio-opaque dye is entered over the catheter. The specialists now can find out any anomalies in the heart or coronary arteries of the patient. If some arteries are excessively narrow, angioplasty might be carried out, or a stent might be put. The procedure lasts about an hour. When the coronary angiography is done, the specialist closes the incision and applies a small bandage.

Recovery

Patients are asked to lie flat in their beds for about 8 hours after the procedure. They may not move their arms or legs, relying on the place where the catheter was presented. Light pressure might be put on the incision place so as to restrain any bleeding.

Patients should stay away from heavy physical activities for a couple of days after the coronary angiography. They may come back to their normal activities and work, relying upon their test outcomes.
