Long waiting times in UK…

Because of long waiting times in UK hospitals due to Covid19, I hit upon the idea of having my bilateral hernia surgery done while on a 2-week holiday in Antalya. After making inquiries through Yasmin, I had a short but comprehensive consultation with an eminent surgeon Prof Alihan Gürkan and my operation was scheduled for a day halfway through my stay in Antalya. It went well with keyhole surgery, I stayed in overnight and was discharged the next day, which gave me 6 days to recover before my flight home to Scotland. Yasmin kept in touch throughout, making sure I had transport to and from the hospital, and a special thanks to Fatma, my mentor and guide at the Memorial Hospital on my day of tests and examinations. I telephoned my surgeon a few days after the operation for advice on removing my plasters and he was most helpful and reassuring about my complete recovery. I was not too fond of the breakfast, but considered it as another form of medicine! My flight home was amazingly comfortable without painkillers, although they were definitely needed for a few days after my operation. In conclusion, I would be happy to have other treatment like this, though in a nice sort of way I hope never to set eyes on the Memorial Hospital again. 🙂

A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

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.

Risks

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

Coronary angiography accompanying side effects might be:

● Slight bruising nearthe incision place

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.
