Using the state-of-the-art devices, the Catheterization Lab provides the
patients with diagnostic coronary angiography, carotid artery and
cerebrovascular angiography, renal artery angiography, foot vessels angiography,
lower extremity artery angiography, cardiac and coronary artery angiography
through hand (radial), coronary angioplasty (heart treatment), carotid artery angioplasty,
renal artery angioplasty, mitral valve valvuloplasty, single- and dual-chamber pacemaker
insertion, ICD insertion, and ICD filter insertion. According to the degree of vascular
stenosis, special medicines and diets are administrated, and if vascular
stenosis exceeds 70%, the patient undergoes angioplasty using a stent insertion
balloon. Echocardiography and exercise test should be performed before angiography,
which can be done in the Echocardiography Clinic.
There are other essential pieces of equipment, including the most modern echocardiography
and ECG devices.
There are also the latest balloons and stents in this department, which are
selected according to the conditions of patients (age, diabetes, etc.).
This is also true for guidewire and catheters used in the department.
This department includes one angiographic room and one 3-bed recovery room.
The working hours are from 7 am to 15 pm; however, the services are
