Diagnosis and treatment of MPG hernia

Intervertebral hernia, which occurs for a number of internal reasons, for example, due to osteochondrosis, which damages cartilage and bone tissue, or external, as a result of excessive stress on the spine or injury, can form in any of its parts and, as a rule, is accompanied by severe back pain ...

Conservative methods of treatment most often do not fundamentally solve the problem, which over time entails functional disorders in the pelvic organs, numbness of the legs and other neurological disorders. To prevent this, surgical treatment is recommended. The operation is also indicated for frequent exacerbations and sharp pains that cannot be relieved by standard anesthetic drugs.

Diagnosis of MPG hernia in the clinic "Acibadem"

In the spinal department of the Center of Neurology and Neurosurgery of the Istanbul clinic " Acibadem", Turkey, under the guidance of a world-renowned professor - Nekmettin Pamir, all diagnostic and therapeutic measures for the elimination of MPH hernia and rehabilitation procedures aimed at restoring the health of patients are performed. For an accurate diagnosis, in addition to a comprehensive, general examination of the patient and laboratory blood tests, the most informative radiological and other research methods are used:

  • X-ray of the spine in frontal and lateral projections;
  • MRI, CT - 3D-, 2D-visualization of intervertebral hernia tissues;
  • stimulation electromyography (EMG).

Treatment of MPG hernia in the clinic "Acibadem"

  • Laser thermodiscoplasty . It is used for hernias up to 6 mm in the early stages of the disease. This is a minimally invasive method of radiosurgery under the control of a high-tech tomograph.
  • Sliding CT . Microsurgical discectomy (microdiscectomy). It is carried out through a 5-cm incision with microinstruments.
  • Endoscopic discectomy. It is performed through 3 cm incisions using spinal endoscopes.
  • Heminlaminectomy. It is carried out through 3 cm incisions, the spinous processes and ligaments are preserved.
  • Endoscopic fusion. Fixation of adjacent discs with metal implants.

The latest rehabilitation training systems contribute to the rapid recovery of the operated patients:

  • Biodex;
  • Armeo Power;
  • Anymov;
  • Lokomat.

Diagnostics and treatment of facial nerve neuritis at Acıbadem clinic

Neuritis of the facial nerve (Bell's palsy, neuropathy of the facial nerve) is a disease that, according to medical statistics, seriously affects the quality of life of at least 23 out of 100,000 people. The disease turns almost half of the patient's face into a “frozen mask”, causing acute pain and other unpleasant symptoms.

Without timely, correct treatment, it gives serious complications:

  • hearing loss
  • dizziness,
  • the appearance of nystagmus (a severe form of oculomotor disorder),
  • the appearance of contractures (limitation of the mobility of the facial muscles)
  • and etc.

Diagnosis of neuritis in the clinic "Acibadem"

Neuritis manifests itself in different ways, depending on the localization of the lesion and its severity. And although the general symptomatology does not raise doubts among the neurologist about the primary diagnosis, additional examinations of the patient are required, which will determine the prevalence of the inflammatory process, confirm or exclude its secondary nature, for example, tumor, and, accordingly, develop an optimal treatment plan.

In the world-famous Center for Neurosurgery and Neurology at the Acibadem Clinic (Turkey, Istanbul), various diagnostic procedures and equipment are used for this purpose. Among them:

  • CT or MRI - new generation computed tomographs;
  • electroneuromyography (ENMG) - a study to determine the functionality of peripheral nerves and skeletal muscles;
  • evoked potentials (EP) is a technique that provides reliable information about the operation of sensory systems (vision, smell, hearing, etc.).

In 75% of cases, the disease is amenable to drug therapy in combination with physiotherapy methods:

  • ultra high frequency current;
  • magnetotherapy;
  • ultrasound;
  • acupuncture.

If, within 2-3 months, recovery has not occurred, surgical intervention is recommended, if possible with the use of robotics. Thanks to therapeutic manipulations with microinstruments under the control of tomographs, healthy tissues are not touched, the functionality of the nerves is preserved, and recovery occurs faster. For diagnostic indications, the following are also used:

  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (Gamma Knife) is a painless and bloodless method of destroying a sensitive root with a precisely focused beam of gamma radiation.
  • Epidural neurostimulation - electrical stimulation of areas of the cerebral cortex by installing special electrodes to relieve pain syndromes.
  • Primary neuroraphy - stitching of nerve branches, in case of their separation from the injury.

Complete healing occurs in 75% of cases, but the duration of the disease over 3 months reduces the chances of relapse-free recovery.

Diagnostics and treatment of pituitary adenoma at Acıbadem clinic

The specialized neurosurgery departments of the Acıbadem network clinics successfully treat brain tumors, including pituitary adenoma.

According to medical statistics, among all intracranial neoplasms, the incidence of pituitary adenoma is approximately 10%. Its timely detection and accurate diagnostic classification without the use of modern medical equipment and highly qualified doctors are questionable, therefore, the benign nature of this pathology often becomes malignant. Timely detection and correct treatment of pituitary adenoma guarantees 100% recovery.

Diagnostic methods

A multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of each patient with suspected pituitary adenoma is used at the Acibadem clinics even at the stage of determining and clarifying the diagnosis. It is carried out with the involvement of specialists in ophthalmology, endocrinology, neurology, and oncology. To visualize and detail the features of the tumor, in addition to traditional analyzes, the following are prescribed:

  • brain studies on the new generation PET-CT and FORCE-CT tomographs;
  • CT angiography or MR angiography (X-rays of the blood vessels in the brain)
  • a number of hormonal tests;
  • ophthalmoscopy (to exclude nonspecific eye diseases).

Treatment of pituitary adenoma

Based on the diagnostic data, a consultation with the participation of a chemotherapist, radiologist and neurosurgeon develops a personalized treatment plan and ways to eliminate the disease.

  • Conservative treatment . Only prolactinomas (hormone-dependent pituitary adenomas) of a small size give in to it.
  • Radiation therapy (gamma therapy or proton therapy). Effective for small adenomas.
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery. The introduction of radioactive micrograins into the tumor itself to destroy it.
  • Neurosurgical treatment. This traditional method of treatment is rarely used and strictly according to indications (large tumor sizes complicated by hemorrhage, etc.) by the transnasal method (using endoscopic techniques) or by the transcranial method with craniotomy.
  • Radiosurgical method of treatment using the CyberKnife system. This bloodless and painless method of destroying adenoma is preferred in most cases. In addition to the high efficiency of the procedure itself - only tumor cells are irradiated and killed, there are other advantages. For example, operations with the CyberKnife are suitable for patients of any age and with any health condition, anesthesia is not required and there are almost no postoperative complications.

The network of clinics of the Acibadem Medical Center with JCI accreditation , which officially confirms the level of quality of their services, is known and popular not only in Turkey, but also in other countries. In the departments of spinal surgery, equipped with unique diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, highly qualified specialists in the field of oncology, neurology, orthopedics, radiology and related professions provide effective assistance to patients with spinal cord tumors of various types, stages and locations.

The latest diagnostic methods

A multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of each patient begins to operate already at the stage of diagnosis. A full examination of the patient in the Acibadem clinics, as a rule, is carried out by a professional team consisting of doctors of general and highly specialized professions. In addition to standard diagnostic procedures, for a detailed study of the individual characteristics of the patient's disease, the following are used:

  • PET-CT (PET-CT) is a radiological equipment that combines the capabilities of positron emission and computed tomography. Helps to identify neoplasms, as well as other neurological pathologies unnoticed by radiography, CT, MRI .
  • Instant Flash-CT (Flash-CT) - the fastest tomograph in the world with the lowest radiation emission.
  • Intraoperative MRI 3 Tesla is a magnetic resonance imaging device that allows you to carry out a diagnostic procedure to determine and control the boundaries of a tumor during a diagnostic procedure and during an operation.
  • FORCE-CT is a multifunctional tomographic system that allows you to scan organs and tissues with minimal exposure to radiation, which is especially important when examining children.
  • Sliding-CT is a technology that allows the use of computed tomography during a surgical operation, which significantly increases its efficiency and safety.
  • EOS (3D Skeletal System Imaging) is a device that provides a three-dimensional image of the spine from the front, back and side.

Treatment of spinal cord tumors in Acibadem clinics

The main treatments for spinal cord tumors are surgery and radiotherapy. Of particular difficulty in eliminating tumor formations are those that are localized in anatomically complex areas and require not only a lot of experience and professional skills from doctors, but also the use of advanced technologies, especially since minimally invasive therapeutic manipulations and microsurgery are preferred .

  • The destruction of the tumor without open surgery is carried out using the Gamma Knife ICON (Gamma Knife) . When using this technology, anesthesia is not required, the patient has no blood loss, no scars remain, postoperative complications do not exceed 1%.
  • With the help of the CyberKnife stereotaxic radiosurgery system, the surgeon can remove the tumor located in the most inaccessible places of the spine. The robotic arm of a linear accelerator is capable of delivering a photon beam directly to a tumor with an accuracy of 0.5 mm and destroying it.
  • The O-Arm spinal neuronavigation system allows you to perform any spinal surgery through a small incision with pinpoint accuracy and guaranteed safety for the patient.
  • Complex tumors that are larger than 4 cm or are at risk are removed with the TomoTherapy radiotherapy unit , which allows image-guided radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) . The operation is performed in one session and does not damage the healthy tissues of the body.

A cerebral aneurysm is a pathological local protrusion of the artery wall due to its thinning or stretching. The disease is widespread - 12 cases per 100,000 people. Without adequate treatment, it can be fatal due to ruptured aneurysm (65% risk) and cerebral hemorrhage.

The Angiographic Center Acibadem has gained worldwide fame for its achievements in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular pathologies. The high level of services provided by the clinic is controlled by the Joint Commission International (JCI) and is annually confirmed by the Joint Commission International (JCI) quality certificate . This became possible thanks to modern medical equipment, the experience and qualifications of doctors, the use of the latest methods and technologies in the elimination of severe ailments in patients.

Brain aneurysm diagnostics in Acibadem

In addition to interviewing the patient, collecting anamnesis and traditional general tests, diagnostic procedures are carried out:

  • Computed tomography (CT) with a contrast agent allows you to determine the presence of an aneurysm and classify it according to its shape, size, localization of the artery on which it was formed, the fact that bleeding has taken place or not.
  • Spinal cord biopsy . The study helps to rule out or confirm bleeding in the adjacent brain tissue.
  • MR angiography or 3D CT angiography are modern methods of examining the vessels of the brain, which can detect even the smallest aneurysms. They are used as a more informative alternative to traditional angiography.
  • Cerebral angiography and transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD) are used to diagnose spasm, which usually develops 3-4 days after hemorrhage and reaches its peak after 1-2 weeks.

Before the operation, if it is shown, additional examination and tests are prescribed.

Treatment of cerebral aneurysm

Conservative treatment. This method does not fundamentally solve the problem, and is allowed if the patient refuses surgical treatment or has contraindications to it, for example, due to age. The main therapies are aimed at relieving symptoms and reducing the risk of complications.

Surgery. 3 types of surgical intervention are possible.

  1. Circumcision of the aneurysm. It is produced as minimally invasive as possible. The detected abnormal arterial bulge is clamped with a clip in order to inhibit the stretching of the vessel wall for rupture.
  2. Coil installation. This minimally invasive endovascular (through catheterization) intervention consists in guiding a catheter to the aneurysm and filling its bulge with an implant, which will prevent the risk of bleeding from a ruptured artery.
  3. Stent placement is a new approach in aneurysm surgery. Inserting and securing a special tube in the area of the bulge reduces the pressure in the artery and further weakening of its wall.

The achievements of Turkish medicine in the field of neurosurgery and treatment of brain tumors (which are more than 130 different types of pathologies, 97 of which are brain cancer) can be called outstanding. The network of clinics of the private medical center Acibadem is considered a new generation of clinics in terms of their technical equipment, doctors' qualifications and the quality of services provided in the diagnosis and treatment of all 3 main groups of brain neoplasms (according to the WHO classification):

  • neuroepithelial tumors (gliomas, etc.);
  • tumors of nerves and blood vessels (neuromas, cavernous angiomas, etc.);
  • tumors of the membranes (meningiomas, etc.).

A multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach to providing personalized care to patients allows the doctors of Acibadem clinics to achieve outstanding results - 91% 5-year survival rate of cancer patients and less than 1% of complications in the treatment of all types of tumors.

Diagnostics of brain tumors in Acibadem clinics

Diagnostic procedures include a complete examination of the patient's body to identify concomitant diseases and a detailed study of brain pathology. In addition to collecting anamnesis and traditional laboratory tests, modern radiological tomographs are used to determine the parameters and location of the tumor:

  • PET CT (PET CT);
  • intraoperative MRI 3 Tesla;
  • instant flash CT (Flash CT).

On the basis of the results obtained, an approach to the collection of tumor tissue for biopsy is planned, the study of which provides reliable information about the DNA, the type and growth of the neoplasm and helps to choose the most optimal method of treatment. Depending on the location of the tumor, the following manipulations can be used:

  • craniotomy (removal of a particle of abnormal tissue by opening the skull);
  • needle biopsy (performed with a thin needle under the control of a tomograph with three-dimensional visualization);
  • neuroendoscopy (extraction of a particle of a tumor through a small hole with a neuroendoscope);
  • lumbar puncture (taking a sample of cerebrospinal fluid).

Modern treatment technologies

Treatment of patients with brain tumors is carried out in specialized clinical departments:

  • pediatric (pediatric) neurosurgery;
  • vascular neurosurgery;
  • neuro-oncological department.

Minimally invasive surgery and radiotherapy are preferred.

Are used:

  • The da Vinci robotic system (da Vinci robotic surgeon).
  • Gamma Knife ICON (Gamma Knife) - a technology that allows you to destroy the tumor painlessly and bloodlessly.
  • The cyber knife is a stereotaxic radiosurgical system that destroys a tumor with a focused beam of ionizing radiation emitted by a robotic arm of a linear accelerator.
  • Cryodestruction - freezing and destruction of a tumor with the activation of the body's immune system. This method has proven itself in the treatment of brain metastases, residual meningiomas, and hard-to-reach glial tumors that were previously considered inoperable. The manipulation is performed using modern neuronavigation systems through a small incision.

In the treatment of some types of brain tumors, chemotherapy with an arsenal of clinically proven drugs, innovative methods of immune and targeted therapy are successfully used.

Cardiology at Acibadem

Heart disease is one of the most common and difficult fatal diseases. 30% of deaths worldwide are caused by cardiovascular disease. Therefore, it is so important to pay attention to the first symptoms of the disease, diagnose it correctly and start treatment in a timely manner. The cardiology centers with departments for adults and children of the Acıbadem Medical Holding are today one of the most modern medical institutions in Turkey and a recognized brand in world health (JCI (Joint Commission Internationa) accreditation since 2005).

The latest medical equipment, a professional team of doctors, our own laboratories, continuous improvement and implementation of unique technologies for the treatment of almost all types of cardiovascular diseases and the most modern methods of patient care allow Acibadem to compete and be on an equal footing with the best cardiology clinics in the United States and Europe.

According to the EuroSCORE scale, a program that measures the risk of an unfavorable outcome in cardiac surgery, the hospital mortality rate averages 3.8%. In Acibadem, it is an order of magnitude lower - 1.6%, and even less for coronary artery bypass grafting - 1%.

Diagnostics at Acibadem cardio centers

For the error-free diagnosis of pathologies of the cardiovascular system, non-invasive equipment is used at the Acibadem cardiology centers:

  • ECG (electrocardiography) . This is a device for the urgent assessment of the work of the heart muscle.
  • Exercise ECG. The method allows detecting foci of blockage (embolism) of blood vessels, which rarely manifest themselves in a person's daily life.
  • Echocardiography and stress echocardiography. Study of the functions and structure of the heart using ultrasound (ultrasound waves) to predict the course of the disease in patients with coronary artery disease (heart ischemia) and myocardial infarction (myocardial infarction).
  • Holter ECG and Trans-telephone monitoring. Continuous monitoring of the patient's heart rhythm using a special recording device attached to his body. Can be performed without distracting the patient from normal activities.
  • PSM (myocardial perfusion scintigraphy). Allows you to obtain data on the blood supply in the heart muscle and choose the correct treatment tactics when pathology is detected.
  • FLASH CT (Flash CT). Rapid diagnosis with a very low level of radiation, allowing you to obtain a scanned image of the heart in cross section.
  • MRI. Provides detailed information about congenital heart diseases, the state of its main arteries, cavities and muscles.
  • Dual Source (computer tomograph 2 × 64). With this machine, cardiac angiography (vascular examination) is performed in just 6 seconds.
  • PET-CT. Allows you to get data about the heart at the cellular level.

Treatment of diseases of the cardiovascular system in Acibadem

Acibadem Cardiology Centers provide effective care in all areas of cardiology. It:

  • coronary artery disease;
  • embolism of the vessels of the heart;
  • embolism of peripheral vessels;
  • heart valve abnormalities;
  • diseases of the aorta;
  • arrhythmias;
  • congenital heart defects;
  • cardiomyopathy;
  • varicose veins.

The following treatments are most commonly practiced:

Coronary Artery Disease Treatment in Acibadem

Ischemic heart disease (CHD), which is based on insufficient blood and oxygen supply to the heart muscle, causing its starvation, is called the "silent killer" of the 21st century. More than 30% of deaths from all diseases occur precisely because of chronic or acute myocardial ischemia - a decrease / cessation of blood flow to it due to stenosis (narrowing) of the coronary arteries (blood vessels of the heart). Medical science has not yet found a way that would completely save a person from this dangerous disease. However, there are a number of techniques and drugs that significantly affect the favorable course of the disease and prolong the life of patients with coronary artery disease.

The 9 centers of cardiology and cardiac surgery of Acibadem, in terms of their technical equipment and staff of highly qualified specialists, surpass similar medical institutions in Turkey and are not inferior to the leading cardiology clinics in the world. Diagnostics, conservative and surgical treatment of coronary artery disease, as well as rehabilitation and preventive measures to prevent this disease in Acibadem are given priority.

Diagnosis of ischemic heart disease in Turkey

The beginning of IHD treatment in the Acibadem Cardiology Clinic is preceded by a full examination of the patient to determine the clinical form of IHD (there are several of them, and each has its own characteristics of manifestation and methods of treatment), as well as concomitant diseases. After collecting anamnesis (medical history) and examination of the patient by a cardiologist, the following are prescribed:

  • Laboratory blood tests (general clinical, biochemical, glycosylated hemoglobin, coagulogram, hemostasiogram).
  • ECG (electrocardiogram) at rest.
  • Exercise ECG. The method allows detecting the presence of foci of blockage (embolism) of blood vessels, which do not manifest themselves during normal, daily physical activity of a person.
  • Holter ECG and Trans-telephone monitoring . Continuous (during the day) monitoring of the patient's heart rhythm using a special recording device attached to his body.
  • Echocardiography and stress echocardiography. Study of the functions and structure of the heart using ultrasound (ultrasound waves) to predict the course of the disease in patients with coronary artery disease (heart ischemia) and myocardial infarction (myocardial infarction).
  • PSM (myocardial perfusion scintigraphy) . Allows you to detect pathologies of the blood supply to the heart muscle.

If necessary, additional instrumental studies are assigned:

  • Intraesophageal electrocardiography. It is used as an auxiliary method to assess the electrical activity of the atria and the atrioventricular junction.
  • FLASH CT (Flash CT). Express diagnostics of the heart, in which a scanned image of an organ is issued in a cross section.
  • MRI. Shows in detail the state of the main arteries of the heart, its cavities and muscles.
  • Dual Source (computer tomograph 2 × 64). With the help of this device, angiography of the heart is performed in 6 seconds (study of the patency of the vessels supplying the heart, the degree of their blockage).
  • PET-CT. Allows you to obtain data on the state of the heart muscle at the cellular level.

Based on the results of the examination, an interdisciplinary commission of specialized doctors classifies the form of coronary artery disease of the patient and develops a comprehensive treatment plan for the disease.

IHD treatment in Turkey

At the initial stages of coronary heart disease, under the close monitoring of the attending physician, a number of targeted drugs are prescribed:

  • to reduce thrombus formation in the vascular beds;
  • to lower and remove cholesterol from the blood;
  • to normalize heart rate and rhythm, blood pressure.

If conservative therapy is ineffective, surgical treatment is used.

  • Coronary angioplasty with or without stenting . This minimally invasive operation is performed under the visual control of fluoroscopy by inserting a special catheter into the femoral artery with a self-expanding balloon at the end. Having reached the narrowed area of the coronary artery, the balloon opens and expands its lumen. Fastening a stent (a special frame mesh) in the focus of a vessel affected by an atherosclerotic plaque not only increases its lumen, but also prevents further narrowing.
  • Rotational atherectomy (removal of atherosclerotic plaque). It is performed in case of complete blockage of the lumen of the vessel with calcified atherosclerotic plaques. A special diamond-coated drill destroys the plaque, the vessel lumen is restored, after which a stent can be installed.
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting. If the strongly narrowed vessel cannot be widened by stenting, coronary artery bypass grafting is recommended. Its essence lies in the creation of a new "bypass" for the blood flow that feeds the myocardium, bypassing the area of the vessel clogged with plaques. It is done by installing vascular implants taken from the patient himself.

The likelihood of complications after stenting and bypass surgery at the Acibadem cardiac centers is minimal. Cost - from $ 1860 (stenting), from $ 16740 (shunting). Upon completion of the treatment procedures, a rehabilitation plan is developed for each patient. It includes taking a course of exercise therapy (physiotherapy exercises) with a dosed load, recommendations for a therapeutic diet and taking medications.

Atrial Fibrillation Treatment at Acibadem

The cardiology centers of the Acibadem medical holding, which in terms of the quality of the services provided, is not inferior to the best clinics in Germany and Israel, provide effective assistance in the treatment and rehabilitation of the entire spectrum of cardiovascular diseases, including atrial fibrillation.

This type of disease is characterized by a violation of the sequence of contraction of the parts of the heart: atria - ventricles. With atrial fibrillation, the muscle fibers of the atria begin to work out of sync, transmitting chaotic electrical impulses to the ventricles, they knock down their correct rhythm and also provoke irregular, unproductive work.

At these moments, a person feels very unpleasant symptoms of cardiac arrest or palpitations, a panic attack occurs - fear of death, which further aggravates the patient's condition.

10% of the world's population suffers from atrial fibrillation, a severe form of atrial fibrillation. In 30% of cases, this ailment leads to ischemic strokes and other dangerous complications. Since atrial fibrillation tends to progress, 75% of deaths occur over time against it. Therefore, it is important to identify the root cause of the disease, correctly diagnose / classify and treat in a timely manner.

Diagnosis of atrial fibrillation in Acibadem

Acibadem cardiology centers have all the necessary equipment, their own laboratories and trained personnel to carry out accurate diagnostics. After a cardiac examination and anamnesis, the patient is prescribed:

  • ECG . Electrocardiography at rest and after exercise.
  • Analyzes of biological materials (clinical and biochemical analyzes of blood, urine, etc.)
  • Echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart) . For various indications, the following can be additionally prescribed: Doppler echocardiography, contrast echocardiography, stress echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography.
  • Chest X-ray.
  • PET-CT is a nuclear scan of the heart, which provides information about the state of the heart tissue at the cellular level.
  • Coronary angiography . The study of blood vessels is carried out using a modern computed tomography 2x64 Dual Source.
  • Other studies to determine diseases that can provoke arrhythmias, such as thyroid disease, diabetes, hypertension.

Based on the results of the examination, an interdisciplinary commission consisting of specialized doctors of the clinic develops a comprehensive plan for the treatment of the disease. A set of drugs is selected individually for each patient, aimed at:

  • restoration of the correct sinus rhythm;
  • normalization of heart rate;
  • reduction of thrombus formation;
  • reduction and removal of cholesterol from the blood;
  • normalization of blood pressure;
  • strengthening the heart muscle.

To eliminate ventricular fibrillation, which threatens the patient's life, electrical cardioversion is used - the restoration of the rhythm by an electric current discharge, synchronized with the phase of the cardiac cycle. If conservative therapy is ineffective, attacks of ventricular fibrillation occur frequently and are difficult to tolerate, surgical treatment is recommended.

Surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation

Surgical treatments for atrial fibrillation include:

  • "Labyrinth" is a technically complex open heart surgery. In 99% of the operated patients, the correct rhythm is restored without the need to take antiarrhythmic drugs for life.
  • Radiofrequency catheter destruction (ablation) - allows the treatment of severe cases of atrial fibrillation. The essence of this minimally invasive surgery is to neutralize tiny areas of the heart tissue that produce abnormal electrical impulses that cause flickering arrhythmia. The positive effect of this procedure is 85-98%.
  • In certain cases, a pacemaker , which is implanted in the subclavian region of the body, helps to cope with arrhythmia.

Arrhythmia treatment at Acibadem

In the cardiology centers of the Acibadem network of clinics, which are rightfully considered the best not only in Turkey, but also in Europe, almost all types of arrhythmias - abnormal contraction of the heart muscle - are successfully treated. "Irregularities" appear due to inconsistency (inconsistency) in the transmission of electrical signals in the heart system, due to which an extraordinary contraction or pause occurs. The statistics of mortality due to heart disease indicate that in 15% of cases, severe forms of arrhythmias are to blame.

Types of arrhythmias and their causes

The following are distinguished by heart rate:

  • bradycardia - pulse 60 and below;
  • tachycardia - pulse 80 and above;
  • paroxysmal (paroxysmal) rhythm disruptions - pulse above 200 beats.

By irregularity of the heartbeat, they are distinguished:

  • extrasystole - early (premature) contractions of the heart muscle occur;
  • atrial fibrillation - with asynchronous contraction of the atria and ventricles.

All types of arrhythmias at the site of the focus of electrical conductivity disorders are subdivided into

  • sinus;
  • ventricular;
  • atrial.

The reason may be:

  • heart failure;
  • heart disease; myocarditis;
  • ischemia of the heart;
  • spinal pathology;
  • thyroid disease;
  • psycho-emotional stress;
  • hereditary and other factors.

Some types of arrhythmias are not dangerous, occur rarely and are transient by themselves. However, those that pass acutely, persist for a long time, cause complications, and require immediate treatment.

Arrhythmia diagnosis at Acibadem

To diagnose, classify and determine the causes of arrhythmias, in addition to examining the patient by a cardiologist, collecting anamnesis and laboratory tests of biomaterials (blood, urine, etc.), are prescribed:

  • ECG (electrocardiogram) at rest and under stress.
  • ECG monitoring during the day.
  • Echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart), including its varieties: transesophageal echocardiography, Doppler echocardiography, contrast echocardiography, stress echocardiography.
  • Coronary angiography . The study of blood vessels is carried out using a modern computed tomography 2x64 Dual Source.
  • Chest X-ray.
  • PET-CT is a nuclear scan of the heart and other organs, which allows you to obtain information about their condition at the cellular level.
  • Other studies to determine diseases that can provoke arrhythmias, such as thyroid disease, diabetes, hypertension.

Arrhythmia treatment at Acibadem

If, as a result of diagnostic procedures, it turns out that the arrhythmia is a complication of another specific disease, then the elimination (treatment) of the provoking cause most often entails the normalization of the rhythm. If the arrhythmia is an independent pathology of the patient's cardiovascular system, then conservative (medication) or surgical remedial measures are taken to normalize the rhythm.

A commission of specialized specialists of the clinic selects a personalized complex of drugs that contribute to:

  • restoration of the correct sinus rhythm;
  • normalization of heart rate;
  • reduction of thrombus formation;
  • reduction and removal of cholesterol from the blood;
  • normalization of blood pressure;
  • strengthening the heart muscle.

If drug therapy is ineffective, arrhythmia attacks are frequent, severe and life-threatening, surgical intervention is recommended. With some types of arrhythmias, therapeutic and surgical interventions without opening the chest give a positive effect:

  • transesophageal electrical stimulation of the heart;
  • implantation of a pacemaker - an artificial pacemaker;
  • defibrillator implantation.

But more often the preference is given to minimally invasive surgery - radiofrequency ablation. A special catheter under the control of an ultra-precise system of navigation equipment is inserted into the heart cavity through a large vessel and acts on the arrhythmia focus with high-frequency ultrasound and cold. This method can completely cure some types of arrhythmias.
