Dr. Taylan AKGÜN CV

He was born on 16.01.1980. In 1996, he started Istanbul Faculty of Medicine. He graduated in 2002.

Between 2002-2008, he completed his Cardiology specialisation at Koşuyolu Heart Training and Research Hospital.

Between 2012-2020, he worked at Koşuyolu Heart Training and Research Hospital– Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology Clinic.

In 2020, he received the title of Professor.

In 2021, he received the European Society of Cardiology – Cardiac Electrophysiology Board Certificate.

Between 2020-2023, he established the Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology unit of Başakşehir Çam and Sakura City Hospital. This centre has become one of the centres with the highest number of cases in Turkey in a short time.

Dr. Taylan AKGÜN Areas of Expertise

AVNRT, AVRT ablation: 4000+ Cases

These rhythm problems caused by the atria of the heart can be completely eliminated 99% of the time, improving the quality of life of the patients, eliminating the need for medication and frequent visits to the emergency room with palpitations.
What is AVNRT and AVRT?

Ablation of atrial tachycardia and atrial flutter: 800+ Cases

Sometimes they present as very persistent, drug-resistant palpitations and can be successfully treated with electrophysiology and ablation.
What is tachycardia?

Atrial fibrillation ablation (persistent, long-term persistent and paroxysmal AF ablation with cryoballoon and RF) 700+ Cases

Atrial fibrillation is the most common rhythm problem in adults and its treatment is very important due to the risk of stroke or heart failure. Ablation can be successfully performed with hot or cold energy sources and patients' quality of life can improve.
Atrial fibrillation ablation

Premature beats and Ventricular tachycardias (endocardial and epicardial access): 1200+ Cases

These ventricle-induced rhythm problems are life-threatening rhythm problems. They are rhythm problems that both disrupt the patient's quality of life and can create a risk of death. Burning procedures can be performed in these patients both by entering through the heart and by entering through the outer membranes of the heart.
What is ventricular extrasystoles

Pacemaker implantation: 1000+ Cases

In cardiac conduction system disorders, single or two-chamber pacemakers can be used to increase the heart rate and to make the ventricles and atria work in coordination.
What is a pacemaker?

Ablation of Idiopathic Ventricular Fibrillation: 8 Cases

Even in the absence of structural heart disease, young, otherwise generally healthy individuals can develop serious life-threatening ventricular rhythm problems. This condition is relatively rare. It poses a high risk to life. In patients who somehow overcome this condition and are implanted with a shock pacemaker, ablation may be needed to reduce the shock. These rhythm problems can be found with precise mapping methods and can be burned with ablation.

CRT-D/P implantation: 400+ Cases

It is the insertion of a pacemaker, which is used in heart failure and enables the chambers of the heart to work synchronously. In suitable patients, heart function can recover with the effect of this pacemaker. Since the electrical activity of the heart occurs synchronously in a shorter period of time, a significant clinical response occurs in a significant proportion of patients, hospitalizations and emergency room admissions are reduced.

Pacemaker Lead extraction: 240 Cases

Pacemakers have been implanted for many years. However, due to both late infections and cable fractures that occur as the cables age, it is sometimes necessary to completely remove the pacemaker and cables. It is a delicate procedure requiring high experience.
Pacemaker Lead extraction

Cardioneuroablation 100+ Cases

It is a procedure that eliminates the need for a pacemaker in the type of fainting characterized by temporary cardiac pauses called reflex syncope. The procedure generally takes 30-45 minutes and the need for a pacemaker is eliminated in the vast majority of patients

ICD implantation 500+ Cases

The shock pacemaker used in heart failure or electrical disorders of the heart is called an ICD. When life-threatening rhythm problems occur, the device delivers a shock to normalize the rhythm and keep the person alive.

Brugada ablation to prevent/reduce ICD shock

Brugada is a genetic disease, but the foci that can cause rhythm problems in this disease are usually localized on the outer side of the right outflow tract region of the heart. Therefore, if frequent rhythm problems occur in this patient group, burning procedures can be performed by accessing between the membranes of the heart and these shocks can be prevented / reduced.

Conductive system pacing

Normally, the contraction of the heart is completed in a time span of 1/10th of a second. When pacemakers are needed in some way, implanting the pacemaker in a way that stimulates the heart's conduction system is very useful to reduce the long-term risks of pacemakers implanted in the normal way.
