Interventional Radiology Center


Group Florence Nightingale Hospitals Interventional Radiology Center was awarded the “TheraSphere Center of Excellence” certificate in May 2016 in the field of treatment with TheraSphere Yt-90 Radioembolization in liver tumors, which is an important application in interventional radiology.

In radioembolization practices, after the versatile and meticulous work process of the expert team, the "Center of Excellence" certificate, awarded by the Interventional Radiology Center, was given to a number of centers in the world. In previous years; Northwestern Memorial Hospital / Chicago-USA, Mount Sinai Hospital / New York-USA, University of Essen / Germany, Istituto Tumori / Milano-Italy and Center Eugene Marquis / Rennes-France hospitals were also entitled to receive this certificate. Thus, the superior service quality of our Interventional Radiology Center has been registered worldwide.

This certificate also enable the approval of  the certification of doctors who will participate in the training program at the Istanbul Florence Nightingale Hospital Interventional Radiology Center in domestic and international training programs.

What are the areas of interest of the Interventional Radiology Unit?

Diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases: diseases that cause vascular occlusion such as arteriosclerosis (atherosclerosis) and vasculitis (vasculitis) can be diagnosed by angiography and treated with balloon angioplasty and / or stents.
In our department, it is possible to treat hemangioma (vascular ball) and vascular malformations (AVM) with embolization accompanied by angiography. In addition, cerebral aneurysms (bubbles), limb aneurysms, aneurysms of visceral vessels (visceral aneurysm) and main artery, aortic aneurysms, angiography-guided embolization by special stents (endograft, cover stent, flow-guiding stent, etc.) can be cured.

Other diagnostic and treatment methods performed in our department where we treat leg varicose veins without surgery but with laser, are listed as follows:
  • Leg and lower extremity angiography
  • Carotid, vertebral, brain and spinal angiography
  • Arm (upper extremity) angiography
  • Pulmonary (lung) and bronchial angiography
  • Renal (kidney) angiography
  • Mesenteric vein (intestinal veins) angiography
  • Celiac, hepatic (liver) angiography
  • Thoracic aorta, abdominal aorta angiography
  • Aortic aneurysm (non-surgical treatment with endograft)
  • Aneurysm of peripheral and visceral arteries
  • Brain aneurysm non-surgical treatment
  • Hemangioma
  • Liver hemangioma
  • Venous malformations
  • Arteriovenous malformations
  • Lymphangioma
  • Lymphocele, lymphocyst
  • Perpheric artery disease, stent-balloon angioplasty treatment
  • Carotid artery occlusion, treatment with stent, Carotid Stent
  • Leg vascular occlusions (atherosclerosis, buerger's disease, diabetic foot)
  • Mesenteric ischemia, mesenteric thrombolysis
  • Renal artery stenosis, renal artery stent
  • Varicose veins treatment with laser
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Vena cava filter
  • Peripheral central vascular access (PICC)
  • Central venous catheter - with and without tunnel
  • Non-surgical treatment of varicocele,
  • Priapism- High Flow Priapism
  • Foreign body removal
  • Renal vein blood sampling - Renal venous sampling
  • Adrenal vein blood sampling - Adrenal venous sampling
  • Renal vein blood sampling - Renal venous sampling
  • TIPS - Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt
  • Hemodialysis fistula treatment
  • Venous stenosis-occlusion stent
Diagnosis and treatment of bleedings: treatment of life-threatening bleedings by endovascular (intravenous) embolization is among the important treatment methods of interventional radiology.

Emergency treatment of gastrointestinal system, lung, vaginal, brain and internal organ bleedings, traumatic and postoperative bleedings is also life-saving. In this context,

Gastrointestinal bleeding, embolization,
Lung bleeding, Hemoptysis, embolization
Traumatic bleeding, embolization
Postoperative bleeding
Bladder-prostate bleeding
Vaginal bleeding
Brain hemorrhage, brain aneurysm, brain arteriovenous malformations (AVM), subarachnoid hemorrhage

- The diagnosis and treatment of bleedings in organs such as liver, kidney and spleen is performed.

Treatment of urinary tract obstructions: performing ultrasonography (USG), computed tomography (CT) or nephrostomy under scopy in urinary tract obstructions are of great importance, especially for the protection of kidney health in children and babies. This importance increases even more in kidney transplant patients. In this context,
- Nephrostomy
- Ureter stent
- Pediatric (child) nephrostomy practices are performed.
