  • Heart valve diseases
  • Aortic Vascular Diseases
  • Peripheral vascular disease (leg artery disease)

  • Rhythm Holter (24-48 hour rhythm monitoring)
  • Blood Pressure Holter (24-hour blood pressure monitoring)


Interventional procedures

  • Transesophageal echocardiography
  • Coronary angiography and cardiac catheterization
  • Balloon angioplasty and stent applications (Medicated stents and biodegradable stents)
  • Electro-physiologic examination (for the diagnosis of rhythm and conduction disorders)
  • Ablation and pacemaker application (for the treatment of rhythm and conduction disorders)
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (for the treatment of heart failure)
