What is Coronary Heart Disease?

Coronary Heart Disease is a disease that occurs as a result of occlusion of the vessels feeding the heart. Clogging of the veins can be caused by many reasons. It is vital to detect heart diseases at an early stage. With the examinations performed by our cardiology doctors, the underlying causes of the disease are determined and treatment methods are started.

What Causes Coronary Heart Disease?

Coronary heart disease, which is the most common heart disease, occurs when two large vessels called coronary arteries are damaged in some way. Coronary arteries mediate the heart's continuous pumping of blood throughout the body by providing the transport of clean blood to the heart. In some cases, arteries are damaged or narrowed and cannot perform these functions.

Coronary heart disease can manifest in different ways;

Vascular occlusion:
Atherosclerosis, also known as atherosclerosis, is manifested by the formation of clots in narrowed arterial vessels. This life-threatening heart condition should be followed up with regular check-ups. If necessary, drug or surgical treatment methods can be used.

Vascular narrowing:
The wall of a healthy coronary artery is smooth. Deteriorations in the internal structure of the arteries cause fat accumulation and pave the way for vasoconstriction. As a result of this deterioration, plaque formation occurs in the vessels. If the plaques pose a risk to the heart, examinations such as Doppler USG and CT (tomography) are performed to determine the severity of the condition.

Damaged vessel:
When we look at the factors of coronary heart disease, we often encounter an unhealthy lifestyle. Factors such as excessive smoking and high cholesterol caused by an unhealthy diet can cause damage to the coronary arteries.


A general idea is formed in the light of the patient's history and symptoms. However, when diagnosing heart diseases, detailed heart radiographs and effort tests may be required. Sometimes even minor symptoms can be reflections of problems in the heart. Therefore, after clarifying the patient's condition, the treatment phase is started.


Depending on the severity of the disease, nutritional recommendations and drug support can be applied. When surgical intervention is required, coronary angioplasty, stent, bypass, open heart surgeries can be applied.
