Angiography service

Angiography studies blood vessels that are not visible on standard radiographs. We speak of arteriography for the exploration of the arteries and of phlebography for that of the veins.
This examination is very useful for the diagnosis of vascularization disorders or before surgery in order to pinpoint the path of the vessels.
At the arterial level, it looks for abnormalities such as narrowing (stenosis) or other obstacles to blood flow. We can explore the renal, pulmonary, cerebral arteries, the retina, limbs …
A dilatation of the vessel can be performed in the narrowed part: this is called angioplasty.
At the venous level, it is part of the phlebitis (clot in a vein) and determines its consequences.This examination uses X-rays and an iodine-based contrast agent.
Its principle consists in making visible (or opaque) the arterial or venous vessels. A catheter is introduced into the vessel to inject contrast product which mixes with the blood: the vascular system becomes visible on the radiological plates thanks to the radio-opaque properties of the iodine.

Delivery room

The delivery room is made in such a way that our patients can feel confident. Modern rooms are equipped with decent materials for prenatal examination and the supervision of the baby and the mother after delivery. We have two delivery rooms. Near the delivery room, there is an intensive care room for newborns to intervene quickly in case of complication with the baby during or after delivery.

Operating room,  Intensive care Service and anesthesia

In the operating room, aeration, air conditioning, and all the hygienic conditions are respected. In addition, there is the laminar flow system in our operating rooms. There are four operation rooms. All the surgeries are done with modern medical equipments. The biomicroscope and the complete system will be used for brain surgery, ear-nose-throat diseases and eye operations. We have all the tools and equipments that will be used by the surgeon during the operation. A half-sterile room is available for the preparation of patients before the operation and their awakening after the operation.

A skillful team will be responsible for anesthesia 24 hours a day (general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, spinal anesthesia, epidural anesthesia, peripheral nerve (peripheral nerve block) matching and local anesthesia. The skillful anesthesia technicians constitute an important part of this team. They will be assisting specialist anesthesists. From newborns to the elderly persons, all surgical attempts of the surgical team on patients are possible in 24 hours a day and very quickly with the support of anesthetists.

General anaesthesia

General anesthesia is done with various drugs that put the patient in a sleep state, relieve half of the pain, and relax most of the muscles. Meanwhile, patients’ airways are connected to a few artificial respirators. With these devices, patient breathing is ignored. During anesthesia, the life functions continue. This time to say better, I think, gives the example of the plane. When traveling by air, whether the destination is a short or long, we must prepare. Because travelers as well as plane and time need many preparations.

We can compare anesthesia to this. Despite the patients’ preparations before surgery, once they arrive at the hospital, they must carry out  a series of preparations until they are on the service beds. In addition, the service itself does some preparations. Meanwhile, in the operating rooms all devices must be prepared in advance as well as all the materials that will be used during the operation. After all the preparations, everything being prepared, the patient is called into the operating room. Preparations are finished only if the patient falls asleep. That means he’s ready to take off.

The intravenous sera are installed as soon as the patients arrive in the operating room. Generally the patient begins to sleep as soon as the serum and the anesthetics come into effect. Administration of other anesthetics continues. The anesthetist continues this way with drugs during the operation. During this period and during the operation the patient feels as if the pain is half relieved. Generally sufficient short-term intravenous anesthesia is given for simple and short-term operations. Other drugs are applied for pain and long-term interventions. The respiratory mask will be placed in the mouth and nose or give oxygen and gaseous anesthetics by means of breathing tubes introduced into the trachea arteries.

In addition, for some operations some catheters such as the stomach catheter, the catheter for urine, the catheter for veins and arteries will be fixed. Drugs are given so that the patient does not feel the pain during the operation; treatments are made for the total control of the functioning of the heart and lungs, the proper functioning of other organs and if necessary serum and drugs are given to the patient. All these operations are done without the patient’s knowing. During the operation, the anesthetist remains on the patient’s side to control the health. During this period the surgeon continues working comfortably. During anesthesia, the anesthetist and the anesthesia technician are constantly controlling the functions of life (pulse, tension, breathing, pulsation, blood oxygen level and many functions). The end of the operation corresponds to the end of the anesthesia. With this process, the effects of the drugs are quickly erased from the patient and then he wakes up from his deep sleep. Patients who wake up from anesthesia are sent to the awakening room and put under complete supervision. What bothers most patients after the operation is the feeling of pain. For this, some pain relief methods are applied so that the patient does not feel much pain when he wakes up. Before some serious long-term operations, patients are sometimes referred to the Intensive Care Unit for good treatment and follow-up after surgery.

Regional anesthesia:

Regional anesthesia is the application of anesthetics on a part of the body (arm, leg, chest etc.). There are other types like spinal and epidural.

Spinal anesthesia

It is the type of anesthesia that applies the drugs to the organs under the waist and the organs that  will undergo the operation. This method is applied on patients who do not do general anesthesia. In this type of anesthesia, the patient is aware of the operation.

Spinal anesthesia is applied to what kind of patient?

  • The operation of fibroids
  • Cesarean delivery
  • Leg fracture surgery
  • Dental prosthesis surgery
  • Inguinal hernia surgery
  • Surgery of patients not meeting the requirements of general anesthesia
  • The operation of hemorrhoids
