The experienced staff in Cardiology Department of Emsey Hospital diagnoses many rare and complex heart pathologies as well as common cardiac diseases and plans treatment in the light of up-to-date scientific data.
Our hospital follows up especially heart valve diseases, coronary artery diseases, congenital heart diseases, hypertrophic cardiomyopathies, heart failure and rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) with multidisciplinary approach and state-of-the-art techniques and technologies. Our cardiologists cooperate with the specialists of relevant branches, such as cardiovascular surgery team, endocrinologists, internists, pathologists, dietitians and physiotherapists, if required. This teamwork is “patient-oriented” and the patient is informed about possible treatment options and the most appropriate treatment is decided.
In this sense, every kind of interventional cardiac procedures (angiography, invasive treatment of coronary and peripheral arteries), pacemaker implantation and non-invasive diagnostic procedures ( rhythm Holter, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, echocardiography laboratory, cardiac stress test, Thallium stress test) is performed successfully in the Department of Diagnostic Cardiology.
Moreover, healthy individuals are informed and educated on cardiac health and risk factors of heart diseases within the scope of preventive medicine

- Invasive treatments (Coronary angioplasty, stent implantation, atherectomy etc.)
Heart attack (myocardial infarction) is a serious life-threatening condition that is caused by blockage of arteries, which supply blood to the heart muscle. In this emergency, the patient should be transferred to angiography laboratory at the most appropriate time, and anti-blockage procedures, such as coronary angiography and/or stent implantation, should be performed, if necessary. Medical equipment, experienced specialists and other healthcare professionals are available at our hospital to perform such invasive procedures round the clock.
Electrophysiology Laboratory is used to diagnose and treat heart rhythm disorders. The problems identified there are eliminated with appropriate treatment options, like pace-maker implantation. Permanent pace-maker implantation is preferred in case of life threateningly slow heart rate. Pace-maker can also be implanted when the heart rate is significantly high.
