The Turkish finance minister travelled to the United States on Tuesday for treatment.
Unikatan was discharged from a teaching hospital in the Turkish capital of Ankara on Sunday. He undertook a diagnostic angiocardiography on February 1.
"I am going to the United States for treatment, and we will see whether they will place a coronary stent or perform a by-pass surgery when we go there," he told reporters before flying to New York.
Unakitan said that he would return after the treatment in Cleveland, but did not set any definite date about a surgery.
