First Operation in Ordu from our University

Two patients with heart rhythm disturbance were successfully treated with the freezing method in Ordu in our Education Research Hospital.

In the coexistence of Assistant Professor Dr. Osman Bektaş from Cardiology Department in Ordu University Education and Research Hospital, a method of freezing (cryo-ablation) was applied to the disorder of rhythm disorder. Asymptomatic rhythm disturbance is a very common disease starting at the heart of the atria, indicating that the disease increases with age. Dr. Osman Bektas stated that this disease caused a heart attack, fatigue, a feeling of excessive fatigue rarely fainting, complaints of shortness of breath. However, Bektaş stated that there may be rhythm disorders without any complaints. "There are many options to treat rhythm disturbance, including changes in lifestyle, medications, catheter-based procedures and surgery. Depending on the complaints and the condition of the heart, a treatment option may be offered to the patient. Drug therapy is actually the first treatment option in patients with almost all rhythm disturbances. "

"Freezing or burning is a good option for patients who are not able to maintain normal heart rhythms or who can not tolerate the side effects of drugs," said Bektas. "In the ice cream method, the patient is usually half-asleep and the operation is usually performed under local anesthesia. The catheters are inserted  into the veins, and advanced into the heart of the heart. The target tissue for ablation is frozen on the tip of the catheter. "

Expressing that this method is a highly effective treatment method today, Bektaş added that this method was applied for the first time in Ordu. The patients suffered from rhythm disturbance. The treatment was done successfully.
