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

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

Side Effects

● 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
