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.

● Patients with abnormal stress test results 
● Patients with symptoms related to coronary artery disease 
● Patients experiencingpain in the neck, arm, chest or jaw 
● Congenital heart disease 
● Heart failure

● Cardiac arrhythmia 
● Coronary vasospasm 

The technique may likewise be executed on patients who have a high risk of developing cardiac difficulties from different kinds of operation.

I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Not Recommended For Coronary Angiography

The coronary angiography is not advised for the accompanying:

● Acute renal failure 
● Chronic renal failure and diabetes 
● Gastrointestinal bleeding 
● Fever, as it can be a sign of infection 
● Active infection within the body 
● Local infection at the incision site 
● Severe anemia 
● Acute stroke 
● Severe hypertension

Duration Of Operation

30 to 60 minutes

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.

Risks

Possible risks and complications of coronary angiography can consist of:

● Stroke 
● Heart attack 
● Damage to arteries 
● Infection 
● Excessive bleeding

● Slight swelling

Success Rates

According to a survey from 7.412 patients who underwent coronary angiography procedures between 1990 and 2000, the complication rate found at 0.8%, and the overall mortality rate for this procedure was 0%.

Before And After

A coronary angiography enables the specialist to collect beneficial data about the patient’s blood vessels. Once the procedure is carried out, specialists can arrange a detailed treatment plan.

Faq

– Does the dye have any negative effects?  No, the dye can give patients a warm feeling when it's injected, but it's harmless.

You will be informed by your doctor, based on your coronary angiography results. 

– When can I resume exercise? 
It’s best to resume physical exercise after the incision has fully healed.
