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.

The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

Overview

Coronary artery stent placement is a widespread heart procedure, which the main purpose is to straighten or break down plaque leading coronary artery illness along with eliminating clots which may give rise to or by now resulted in a heart attack. Also names as the PCI, which represents for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. Heart stent technique is constantly led together with angioplasty – balloon caterer broadens the artery, enabling for putting a stent. Over the last few years, an increasing number of patients choose to go through the coronary artery stent placement abroad owing to the advancement of medical tourism, noticing that specialists in foreign medical services are as qualified in this heart procedure as their equivalents in the homeland.

Preparation

The first and most significant phase of preparations for cardiac catheterization, along with stent placement, is consulting your specialist in great detail. It is significant to brief about all of your health circumstances and medications, alongside allergies and pacemaker – these may impact the manner your specialist carries out the heart stent practice. In fact, piercing in stomach area ought to be pointed out just like pregnancy. Furthermore, blood-thinning medications, for example, aspirin have to be avoided except if your specialist permits you to keep utilizing it. Lastly, fasting for a couple of hours before coronary artery stent placement will be requested.

How It Is Performed

Heart stent placement practice is not surgery. First of all, a cardiac catheter is put in the blood vessel of the patient (commonly in the groin or arm). The balloon catheter is now directed to the heart, where it let out a particular kind of dye, serving to position the plaque, clots, or any other barriers to the bloodstream. Balloon catheter conveys with it a stent which is a little metal tube that can broaden to fit the walls of the blood vessel. When the balloon catheter with stent extends to the point where plaque or clot is positioned, it is blown up so as to demolish somewhat and straighten the plaque and put the heart stent, which can enlarge with the balloon before fitting the walls of the coronary artery. In such a way, the normal bloodstream is re-established. Throughout one PCI, more than one cardiac stent might be put.

Recovery

Because coronary artery stent placement is a non-invasive heart stent practice but not surgery, most likely, you have the option to return home after a few hours, even though several patients choose to remain a night. When at home, you will gradually restart your every day activities by avoiding vigorous chores.

Risks

Despite the fact that cardiac catheterization practice with heart stent placement is a comparatively harmless and non-invasive treatment, there are a few risks and complications identified with it. One of the risks of coronary angiography is extreme bleeding from the area of the cardiac catheter entered into the vessel. There is additionally a slight probability of heart issues, for example, the development of clots, the overall shutting of the coronary artery, heart attack, or stroke. Lastly, likewise, in numerous medical techniques involving incisions, cardiac catheterization practice may result in a slight infection, simply controllable with medications given by a specialist.

Side Effects

As stated previously, heart stent practice may result in heart issues in the long period, comprising a heart attack or blood clot development in the region of the stent. Aside from this, no coronary artery state placement side effects are seen in most of the patients. 

Success Rates

In about 40% of patients, heart stents are unsuccessful to stay open, thus requiring another stent placement or even heart surgery, particularly within one year from the first one.

Before And After

Having cardiac catheterization together with stents in the heart doesn’t negatively affect patients’ life – they can appreciate the actions which were frequently difficult before, because of their heart issues.

Faq

What is a Stent? 
A stent is a metal tube which can expand with the support of the balloon catheter. It helps to retain coronary arteries open. 

Can I receive Cardiac Catheterization without a Stent? Yes, it is possible, but it proved to be highly unsuccessful – most of the patients who underwent only percutaneous coronary angioplasty had to undergo another angioplasty procedure within 6 months. 

Why choosing a stent when there is a Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Procedure? Your doctor, while assessing your situation, will choose the best treatment for you. For some patients, it is better to undergo coronary artery stent placement rather than coronary artery bypass graft.
