Case Presentation: Age 78, severe aortic stenosis, cardiac left ventricular ejection fraction (cardiac pumping capacity) is 35%, TAVI (biological aortic valve replacement through inguen) has been performed. Patient’s complaints continued and after 1 month, valve leak is observed (paravalvular leak) and TAVI (2nd implantation) operation is renewed.

Urinary system stone disease is a quite common health problem that affects 2-3% of people and causes serious problems if not treated.

It is proven that valve repair is the best method for Mitral Valve Insufficiency. Whether it is rheumatic or degenerative, mitral valve has to be repaired if it is possible.

In the last decade of the 20th century, the human population will increase by 1 billion, but in the next 25 years it will approach 2 billion. A person born in 1920 shared this world with 1.5 billion people and now shares it with 6 billion people. In our lives, a rapidly aging population (> 65 years old) and very old (> 85) populations are formed. As the elderly population triples, a 20-35% decline in the number of children is foreseen.
Prof. Tayfun Aybek, MD -head of the Cardiovascular Surgery Department at TOBB ETU University – conducted the project of Remote Patient Monitoring Systems and the same University supported the Research and Development studies of this project. Remote Patient Monitoring Systems enable patients to follow their vital parameters (tension, EKG, saturation, hemoglobin, arterial blood gases etc.) after a Cardiac Surgery or Heart Attack. Patients may communicate their doctors instantly through the system.
