Cardiology Laboratory (Effort- Echocardiography -Holter Monitor-Pediatric Cardiology Echo)

ECG: The rhythm disturbances of the heart give us information about the past or current heart attack.

Stress ECG: It allows you to detect abnormal findings that cannot be detected in your resting ECG during effort. Pain in the chest during exertion or disruption in the ECG in serial ECG recordings gives us ideas that there is severe coronary artery stenosis.

Echocardiography: It gives us very important information about the decision of the grades of stenosis and insufficiencies in the heart valves, the presence of congenital heart diseases, the diagnosis of heart muscle disease and the insufficiency of the heart's contraction.

Holter Monitoring: It records heart beats for 24 hours and gives us information about rhythm disorders of the heart or veins.

Coronary Angiography: It is applied in patients with suspected vascular occlusion. Under local anesthesia, the inguinal artery is entered and a catheter (wire) extending from the groin to the heart is inserted. Coronary vessels are imaged with a stained substance. Depending on the stenosis and blockage in the vessel, drug therapy, balloon stent or bypass surgery treatment is performed.
