Heart disorders

The heart is the muscular organ that pumps oxygen-rich blood to all the body. Thus, it transports blood to all cells tissues, and upper and lower organs to nourish them. To do this, it receives blood loaded with carbon dioxide to be sent to the lungs where it is exchanged with oxygen. Located within the rib cage, it circulates blood throughout via the blood vessels, providing the energy needed to keep the various organs operating.

An electrical system controls the heart, using signals to cause the walls of the heart muscle to contract. Once they are contracted, blood is pumped through the circulatory system. The organ is made up of inlet and outlet valves, where the aortic and pulmonary ones open to ensure blood flows in the right direction. The mitral and tricuspid valves in turn prevent the blood from flowing backward by closing.

The heart is vital for health and, basically, everything that happens in the body. Without the pumping action of the heart, the blood could not circulate.

A healthy heart supplies the right amount of blood to the body's needs for proper functioning. Otherwise, in the case of heart disease or injury, organs will function irregularly due to the lack of oxygen received.

Heart disease can impair the heart's electrical system and pump function. But more generally, diseases affecting the heart muscle interfere with the pumping ability of the heart.

Cardiology Visit in Turkey

In order to treat any cardiological pathology at the lowest possible cost, we recommend Turkey as the ideal destination. Thus, you can diagnose and monitor any cardiac disorders resulting from chronic diseases, chest pain, or abnormal palpitations.

Among the pathologies most often treated by the cardiologist are:

  • Arrhythmia: This is an irregular heartbeat.
  • Atherosclerosis: This is the stiffness of the arterial blood vessel.
  • Cardiomyopathy: It consists of the heart muscle malfunctioning, which no longer pumps blood properly to the rest of your body. This leads to fatigue and shortness of breath.
  • Congenital heart defects: These are malformations affecting the heart as a result of abnormal development of one or more components of the heart from birth.
  • Coronary artery disease: Generated when blood supply to the myocardium is blocked by accumulated fat in the coronary arteries.

The term cardiovascular disease refers to heart disease that specifically involves the veins.

Diagnosis of heart disease in Istanbul, Turkey

Your doctor may order several types of tests and evaluations to help diagnose heart disease. Some of these tests can be done even before you show signs of heart disease. Others can be used to look for possible causes of symptoms when they develop.

Blood tests and physical exams

Blood and cardiological examinations are always required in different phases of treatment.

The first involves a doctor-patient interview, during which the cardiologist tries to gather all the information regarding the patient's lifestyle, medical history, and any previous illnesses or disorders. Then, he orders physical examinations to measure pressure and examine any disorders caused by heart malfunction, such as:

  • Liver enlargement.
  • Lower extremity swelling.
  • Heart rate.
  • The jugular veins disorder.

Blood tests are often ordered as they help measure your cholesterol levels and detect signs of infection.

Non-invasive tests

Non-invasive tests can be done to diagnose cardiovascular disease, such as:

  • ECG (electrocardiogram)
  • echocardiogram
  • Stress test
  • Carotid ultrasound
  • Holter Monitor
  • Tilt table test
  • CT scan and auricular MRI

Invasive testing

If all the previous tests are inconclusive, your cardiologist may want to look inside your body for a diagnosis. This can help her find out the reason for the unusual symptoms. Invasive examinations may include:

  • Cardiac catheterization: The cardiologist introduces a catheter into the heart through the groin and an arterial blood vessel. Once this device is in the heart, a coronary angiogram is performed.
  • Electrophysiology study: The cardiologist can attach electrodes to the heart via a catheter. Once the electrodes are in place, electrical impulses are sent and the heart's response is recorded.
