Hayati Akbe, a 67-year-old financial adviser living in Istanbul, found out when he visited a doctor about 3 years ago that there was a blockage in the “carotid artery”, known as the carotid artery. Hayati Akbe, whose children are also doctors, came to Sultangazi Haseki Training and Research Hospital for examination on their advice. As a result of the examination, the obstruction in the left carotid artery of the patient was at a high risk position, said Prof. Dr. K.S. Dr. Mehmet Mustafa Kane says a stent procedure should be performed. If the operation is not done, the patient is more likely to become paralyzed within a year. Dr. Can and his team performed a successful operation and placed a stent on the patient. Akbar, who was discharged after the operation, noted that carotid artery occlusion is a disease that usually shows no symptoms. Dr. Can warn about the disease.
“If I had only continued a little longer, I might have stayed somewhere.”
Hayati Akbe, a 67-year-old financial adviser, said she was relieved of the discomfort she felt after the operation. By 70 percent. He was told he could pass through some blood thinners and not make progress, but 2 months ago he started having serious problems. When I went to give another test in my walking, balance, sleep, I was told that this task had reached 90 percent and I had to hurry. So, we start a quick search. The team is a very good team, so it was a very successful operation. There was constant imbalance while walking, I was getting tired very quickly. For example, I had to rest once, 600-700 meters from my office to my house. I suspect my heart, I went to check, they had nothing, this was detection. I was having a hard time sleeping. The silence of the night when the head was resting on the pillow, the room was whistling. There was a buzz in the room, I didn’t feel it when I was sitting, but putting my head on the pillow is a very bad problem. My doctor inserted a stent, I was very comfortable after the operation. Seriously, I’m fine. They should pay attention to every word in the neck area, it should not be ignored. Because if I had continued a little longer with 90 percent closed veins, maybe I could have stayed somewhere. If my kids weren’t interested in medicine, maybe I shouldn’t have taken this incident so seriously, there should have been some specific program to make people aware of this, “he said.
“It comes to the patient without symptoms and with a stroke, which we call a stroke.”
Providing information about the condition of the patient, the administrative and education officer of the cardiology clinic of Sultangazi Haseki Training and Research Hospital, Prof. Dr. Dr. Mehmet Mustafa Kane said, “We can easily do all the procedures that our clinic needs to do in the cardiology clinic. He was a member of a group of patients with carotid artery disease. Our patient had what we call a wonderful, balance problem. We have diagnosed the patient and explained to him the risks of treatment and we have successfully performed the procedure. Carotid artery disease is usually asymptomatic and occurs in patients with a stroke, which we call a stroke. It is important to intervene in the patient before paralysis occurs. We see most of them lying in paralysis in an emergency. It had a risky vascular structure, it was very complex, the risk of stroke was really high, “he said.
“If you don’t intervene, maybe the next day he will be crippled.”
He stressed that if the patient is not treated, the chances of paralysis are much higher. Dr. Mehmet Mustafa Kane said, “This patient had very serious vascular occlusion, he will come to us within a year with a high rate of stroke. Let’s scan these patients, look for carotid artery disease and put a stent on each one so that there is no idea. Carotid artery disease is a group of diseases commonly associated with diffuse vascular disease, a high risk factor, and uncontrolled diabetes. In general, we can detect and detect it surgically or in patients with tinnitus, paralysis or temporary paralysis. They said 90 percent for ultrasound obstruction, but 98-99 percent for our angiographic imaging. We call this the veins that feed half of the brain, there are two large veins. They both eat food like tree branches, but when the arteries get clogged, they have problems feeding to the brain. If left untreated, he will probably be paralyzed the next day, perhaps within a year. Most of them go to emergency services or hospitals with paralysis. Our clinic has really become one of the best clinics in Europe. In our patient’s angiography, we detected 98 percent stenosis in the left carotid artery. It can affect 30-40 percent or even 50 percent of patients within 1 year, “he said.
