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 Artery Stent Placement

Angioplasty and stent may not produce the best outcomes for certain patients with coronary artery disease. Therefore other, more invasive solutions, such as coronary artery bypass graft might be suggested. Your specialist will set the ultimate choice in regards to your capacity to receive a coronary artery stent placement.

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.
