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!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

Recommended For Coronary Artery Bypass Graft

Patients who are suffering from heart angina can be the candidates for coronary artery bypass surgery. However, it is important to focus on the coronary artery obstruction. The patient can be considered as a candidate for coronary artery bypass graft when the coronary artery obstruction is higher than 50%. However, it is still depended on the cardiologist’s opinion, since the operation is invasive, open-heart surgery. 

Not Recommended For Coronary Artery Bypass Graft

Patients who are suffering from coronary artery diseases with a significant blockage in their arteries can be candidates for coronary artery bypass surgery. However, it should be discussed with a cardiologist to decide on the patient’s suitability for the procedure.

Overview

Coronary artery bypass graft (shortly: CABG) is a type of heart surgery that is performed to bypass clogged or partially clogged coronary arteries in the patient’s heart. The left coronary artery and the right coronary artery are responsible for the maintenance of oxygen to the heart. However, these arteries might be blocked with plaque, as a result of aging or an unhealthy lifestyle. The plaque influences the heart in two different ways – firstly it might be blocking the light of the blood vessels or, when ruptured, it may result in a blood clot that would cause cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, cardiologists decide on performing the coronary artery bypass graft to avoid the development of such serious heart problems.

Preparation

The coronary artery bypass graft is an important operation that requires proper preparation before the surgery with the guidance of a cardiologist. Initially, the patient should have some tests, such as a blood test. This way, the cardiologist would be preparing properly with the information gained from the tests, and the results can be used to compare the patient’s condition before and after coronary artery bypass graft as well. Also, your doctor should be informed about the other illnesses you are suffering from as well as the medications you are taking. Your doctor may ask you to stop taking some of the medicines before the operation, such as the ones with blood-thinning qualities. Also, you should stop eating and drinking several hours before the surgery. Finally – make sure that your personal matters are solved and organized – during the recovery period, you should rest rather than run errands. 

How It Is Performed

While performing the coronary artery bypass graft, a blood vessel is taken from the patient’s body, which is usually from the leg then surgeons try to attach it to the coronary artery below and above the blocked or partially blocked part of the vessel. The need for several heart bypass is depended on the size and the number of narrow passages/clots, according to need double, triple, or even quadruple bypass surgery can be performed.

Recovery

Coronary artery bypass surgery requires a long recovery period. Just like in any other kind of open-heart surgery, the recovery period of coronary artery bypass surgery must be long enough to confirm that the new heart bypasses are working properly. During the first week after the operation, the patient needs to stay in the hospital under the supervision of a cardiologist and a medical staff. After that, the patient can return home, but for couple weeks the patient should not be doing any strenuous activities. Six weeks after the coronary artery bypass surgery, it is possible to return to work and continue your regular life. However, the total recovery period of heart bypass is estimated to be around 12 weeks.

Risks

The coronary artery bypass graft is a complex operation. Just like the other kind of open-heart surgeries, coronary artery bypass graft has several risks and complications as well. These include:
• Disturbances in proper blood circulation and pulse, for example, atrial fibrillation• Fluid or blood in the lungs
• Anemia
• The abnormal healing process of the sternum
• Infections
• Sepsis
• In extreme cases - death

Side Effects

After the coronary artery bypass graft patients may firstly experience some amounts of pain and functioning problems in some areas such as during physical activities. Yet, with time the pain would be eased, and the patients would regain their mobility.

Success Rates

Coronary artery bypass graft has a high success rate with only 3-4% of failure of the procedure and resulting in the patient’s death. Also, there is a possibility of experiencing some complications, but these can be usually managed by cardiologists. Coronary artery bypass graft that is open-heart surgery has a high success rate around 90%. Therefore, it is thought to be relatively a safe heart surgery.

Before And After

After the coronary artery bypass graft, patients who were suffering from heart angina before are usually relieved from this cardiovascular disease. Many patients can return to a more active life, and it is possible to enjoy the benefits of coronary artery bypass surgery for up to 10-15 years after the procedure.
