Cardiovascular Surgery

Cardiovascular Surgery team of the Güven Hospital carried our more than 30.000 operations since 1993, mostly without touching the aorta, stopping the heart beat and stripping veins from the leg (for benefitting more of the surgery time).

Cardiovascular Surgery team of the Güven Hospital, headed by Haldun Karagöz MD, since 1998, began to carry out coronary by-pass surgery without inducing general anesthesia for first time in the world.

Minimally Invasive Direct Coronary Artery Bypass (MIDCAB) is a less invasive method of coronary by-pass suregery in the surgical treatment of coronary heart disease. MIDCAB provides access to heart with a smaller incision, compared to other surgical techniques.

MIDCAB is also called as "key hole" surgery. coronary artery by-pass in beating heart or "beating heart" surgery is a surgical technique used in the treatment off coronary heart disease without using heart-lung machine. In most by-pass surgeries, the heart is stopped and the heart-lung machine takes over the functions of heart and lungs. If a cardiovascular surgeon prefers to operate on beating heart, the patient will be free of the risks originating from the heart-lung machine.
