Coronary Artery Bypass Graft in Turkey

Compare 16 clinics

Coronary artery bypass graft (shortly: CABG) is a heart surgery, conducted to bypass clogged or partially clogged coronary arteries in patient’s heart. The role of the left coronary artery and the right coronary artery is to provide the heart with oxygen. However, with age or as a result of unhealthy lifestyle, these important arteries may be increasingly blocked by plaque. Plaque may affect the heart in two ways – it may block the light of the blood vessel or, if ruptured, cause a blood clot, leading to serious cardiovascular diseases. For this reason, cardiologists decide for coronary artery bypass graft, preventing the development of life-threatening heart conditions.

Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Candidates

Potential coronary artery bypass surgery candidates are the people with cardiovascular disease, suffering from heart angina. The key factor is coronary artery obstruction. If it is higher than 50%, the patient may be a candidate for coronary artery bypass graft. Still, it is up to cardiologist’s decision, since it is an invasive, open heart surgery.

Am I Suitable for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft?

If you suffer from coronary artery diseases and the blockage in your arteries is significant, you may be a candidate for coronary artery bypass surgery. Still, please contact your cardiologist in order to discuss this possibility with them.

Preparing for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft

Coronary artery bypass graft is a serious heart surgery. Therefore, you need to prepare properly for it under the guidance of your cardiologist. Firstly, you will have some tests, including a blood test, done. These will help your heart doctor to prepare properly as well as serve to compare your results before and after coronary artery bypass graft. In the same time, consult with the cardiologist about all the medicines you take and all diseases (especially diabetes) which you suffer from. Some of them, including blood thinning ones, will be probably forbidden for some time before your coronary artery bypass graft. Your stomach needs to be empty throughout heart operation, therefore you will be asked to stop eating and drinking for several hours before it. Finally – make sure that your personal matters are solved and organized – during the recovery period you should rest rather than run errands.

How is Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Performed?

During coronary artery bypass graft, cardiologist takes one blood vessel from a part of patient’s body (usually leg) and attempts to connect it to the coronary artery below and above the blocked or partially blocked part of the vessel. Depending on the size and number of narrow passages/clots, more than one heart bypass may be created, resulting in double bypass surgery, triple bypass surgery or even quadruple bypass surgery.

As in the case of any other open heart surgery, recovery period must be longer in order to ensure that your new heart bypasses work properly. Therefore, for the first week after coronary artery bypass graft, you will stay in the hospital under the care of a cardiologist and whole medical team. Then, it is time to go home but again – first weeks of recovery should be rather relaxed, not including any strenuous activities. Going to work and resuming a quite normal life is possible around the 6th week after coronary artery bypass surgery, while the whole heart bypass recovery is estimated to last as long as 12 weeks.

Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Risks and Complications

• Fluid or blood in lungs
• Anemia
• Abnormal healing process of sternum
• Infections
• Sepsis
• In extreme cases - death

Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Success Rates

Coronary artery bypass graft is generally successful, with only 3-4% of patients dying as a result of it and next few percent experiencing some kind of complications, usually solved by cardiologist assisting them in full recovery. Remembering that this is an open heart surgery, the success rate of coronary artery bypass graft around 90%, which is a big success, then it can be called a relatively safe heart operation.

Before and After Coronary Artery Bypass Graft

Turkey

Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.

Healthcare

Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.

Sights to See

Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.

Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.

Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

Things to Know

● If you don’t feel like waiting in a queue, you can get a VISA for Turkey online. The VISA usually costs around $20 for US travellers.

● Turkey’s population is predominantly Islamic so it’s a good idea to wear a headscarf while visiting mosques. Shorts or any other garments that fit under the knee are not prohibited by law but it’s considered good etiquette not to wear shorts for men or short skirts for women.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira – the Turkish currency just about everywhere. Most supermarkets and shops also accept credit cards.

● Roaming fees in Turkey can be somewhat expensive, so it’s a good idea to simply buy a new Turkish SIM card and use it while staying in Turkey.

● Turkey’s international calling code is +90.

● Electrical installations usually operate on 220 volts, 50 Hz and use European style plugs and European style sockets. Four and Five star hotels usually provide North American - 120 volts, 60 Hz sockets as well.

● Driving in Turkey can be a hassle sometimes, but very pleasurable at other times. Roads are usually in good shape and some roads actually lack traffic, so it can be a relaxing experience. In Turkey, people drive on the right, so that’s a detail you will need to keep in mind. In some areas, villagers made cardboard and marker pen signs in order to help lost tourist on their way.

● Renting a car in Turkey is quite simple and cheap. If you have the budget for a full insurance, you should definitely take it – if anything happens, at least you won’t have to worry about money.

● The Turkish Airlines Company, THY offers destinations to just about anywhere in the world with a total of 261 destinations. The company was founded in 1933 and features 285 passenger and cargo planes.

● Turkey uses the metric system which is easy enough to understand – 1 Km = 1000 meters, 1 Kg = 1000 grams, and so on. One mile equals 1.60 Km.

● Turkish people are warm and very hospitable - It is customary for people to hug and kiss both cheeks regardless of their gender.

● Turkish street food is very diverse, from the simple bagel-type snack Simit to the familiar pizza-type Lahmacun, there are tons of variants to just about anything. 



● Turkish coffee is world renowned, but it’s also a bit different than say, its American counterpart -  It is usually a strong coffee with a rich aroma, served very hot from a small traditional cup. Be careful not to drink any of the coffee grounds still in the cup.

● Turkish delight, as the name suggests, can be a really sweet delight for tourists. It is made from sugar, starch and just about any fruit or aroma imaginable, including walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, dates, lemon, orange, rosewater and many others. Turkish delight is usually served with coffee and it became popular all around the world, including in the Balkans region and as far as Brazil and North America.
