The best Cardiology Hospitals in Turkey
The basic structural unit of the human body is cells. Cells come together to form tissues, tissues organs and organs to form body systems that enable the body to regulate various physical and chemical events. All systems in the body work in harmony with each other to maintain their vitality and stay healthy. The body has 7 systems: digestion, excretory, circulatory, nervous, respiratory, skeletal and reproductive. The skeletal system and muscles form the body's motion system, allowing it to survive and move. Respiratory system removing the oxygen needed by the cells and removing the carbon dioxide; the digestive system makes the nutrients needed by the body available and presented to the circulatory system; the circulatory system carries nutrients and oxygen to the cells and the wastes from the cells reach the excretion system; excretion system of waste materials from the body; reproductive system ensures healthy reproduction.
What is Cardiology?
The branch of science that studies the diseases related to the heart and circulatory system is called cardiology. Cardiology, which was a sub-branch of the Internal Medicine department, is a separate department today. A doctor who is trained in medicine gets his specialty in cardiology and gets the title of cardiologist. People who have symptoms such as fatigue, cyanosis, palpitations, fainting, night urination, edema, shortness of breath, chest pain are treated in the cardiology department.
What diseases does cardiology deal with?
The main task of the heart is to pump blood into the body. If the heart fails to pump enough blood the body needs for various reasons, heart failure occurs. Cardiology, especially heart failure;
- Ischemic heart diseases
- Atherosclerotic coronary artery disease
- Acute coronary syndrome
- Angina pectoris
- Tricuspid stenosis
- Aortic insufficiency
- Aortic stenosis
- Mitral valve insufficiency
- Mitral valve stenosis
- Myocardial infarction
- Endocardial diseases
- Pulmonary insufficiency
- Pulmonary stenosis cardiomyopathy
- Acute myocarditis
- Pericardial effusion
- Pericardial tamponade
- Cardiac tumors
- Primary tumors
- Peripheral arterial diseases
- Cardiac arrest
- Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome
- Cardiac arrhythmias
- Atrial myxoma
It deals with diseases of the heart and circulatory system.
What are the symptoms in cardiology diseases?
- Involuntary weight loss in some heart diseases
- Angina pectoris, in other words, chest pain in people with arterial disease.
- Dyspnea, which develops especially due to heart failure, breathing difficulties and urination at night
- Hemoptysis, i.e. blood vomiting, arising in problems with heart valves
- Orthopedics due to worsening respiratory distress
- Impotence, hardening problem
- Syncope, which is one of the common cardiological symptoms,
- Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, the most characteristic symptom of heart failure, that is, shortness of breath that occurs severely enough to wake patients from sleep
Diagnostic methods used in heart diseases
Electrocardiography (ECG): ECG, a non-invasive diagnostic method, is the recording of electrical activity in the heart. The recorded information gives information about the work of the heart muscle and the nervous conduction system.
Effort Test: The symptoms are evaluated and the severity of the disease is determined as a result of the effort test used in determining the coronary artery diseases and determining its prevalence.
Holter ECG: It is a diagnostic method applied in patients who need ECG recording for more than 24 hours.
Lung Graphs: Lung graphs, which provide access to important information about the position and cardiothoracic ratio of the heart, are one of the important diagnostic methods used in heart diseases.
Echocardiography (ECO): ECO, which is used in the diagnosis of heart failure and heart valve disorders, provides the examination of the heart structure through a probe.
CT Coronary Angiography: CT coronary angiography, which is applied in patients who cannot have coronary angiography, is generally used for screening.
Cardiac Catheterization: Cardiac catheterization, which is a very important diagnostic method in the diagnosis of coronary artery diseases and valvular diseases, is taken from the heart by invasive means and the pressures of the heart chambers can be measured.
Myocardial Perfusion Scintigraphy: The method of diagnosis using gamma rays is radio nuclear imaging technique.
