Cardiologic examination, echocardiography (ECHO), transesophageal echocardiography, fetal echocardiography, circadian rhythm, ambulatory blood pressure holter monitoring and effort test are performed in pediatric cardiology polyclinic of our hospital. Patients visit our polyclinic for complaints such as cyanosis, murmur, chest pain, palpitation, dizziness, fainting and hypertension mostly.

Examination and evaluation of ECG and ECHO of the patients are made on the same day while appointments are made for holter, effort test, electrophysiological studies and catheter angiography procedures except for emergency patients.

There are 2 halls where high quality materials and modern technological devices are used in the cardiac catheterization and angiography lab of our hospital. One of those halls is for electrophysiological study, ablation and pacemaker-ICD placing and the other one is for transcatheter interventional procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart diseases.

Congenital heart defects and rhythm disorders of the fetus of 18 weeks pregnant women are detected, followed and treated until delivery in our clinic. Infants with congenital heart disease are treated in the best way right after their birth by the multidisciplinary work of pediatric cardiology, neonatology and cardiovascular surgery clinics.

Congenital heart diseases treatment (atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect closure, treatment of coarctation by balloon and stent, patent ductus arteriosus persistent opening and closure etc.) can be carried out by the angiography method without needing a surgery.
