What is cardiac surgery?

Cardiac surgery is on the heart performed by cardiac surgeons. It is done to treat complications of ischemia heart disease for example, coronary artery bypasses grafting, correct congenital heart disease, or treat valvular heart disease caused by various causes including endocarditis. It also includes heart transplantation.

Why Cardiac Surgery?
  • Repair or replace the valves that control blood flow through the heart chambers
  • Bypass or widen blocked or narrowed arteries to the heart
  • Repair aneurysms, or bulges in the aorta, which can be deadly if they burst
  • Implant devices to regulate heart rhythms
  • Destroy small amounts of tissue that disturb electrical flow through the heart
  • Make channels in the heart muscle to allow blood to travel from a heart chamber directly into the heart muscle
  • Boost the heart's pumping power with muscles taken from the back or abdomen
  • Replace the damaged heart with a healthy heart given by a donor
What are the Types of Cardiac Surgery?
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
  • Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization
  • Heart Valve Repair or Replacement
  • Arrhythmia Treatment
  • Heart Transplant
  • Ventricular Assist Devices
  • Open-Heart Surgery
  • Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery
Success Stories
FAQ's
What are the major risk factors for heart disease?

The major risk factors for heart disease (also called cardiovascular disease or CVD) are smoking, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, obesity,diabetes, age, gender, and heredity (including race).

What is coronary bypass surgery?

Bypass surgery improves the blood flow to the heart with a new route, or "bypass,"around a section of clogged or diseased artery. The surgery involves using a section of blood vessel from another part of the body to bypass a part of the diseased coronary artery. This graft creates a new route for blood to flow, so that the heart muscle will get the oxygen-rich blood it needs.

What is a pacemaker and how does it work?

A pacemaker is a surgically implanted device that helps to regulate your heartbeat.Pacemakers use batteries to produce electrical impulses that make the heart pump. The impulses flow through tiny wires (called leads) that are attached to the heart. The impulses are timed to flow at regular intervals. Most pacemakers work only when they are needed. They have a sensing device that either shuts off the pacemaker if the heartbeat is above a certain rate or turns the pacemaker on when the heart is beating too slowly.

What are the restrictions after CABG?

For the first 2 months, avoid swimming, driving, sex, breath holding exercises, and yoga. This is because your heart is irritable and sensitive. It may lead to irregular heart beat and could be risky for you.

What is a nuclear stress test?

A stress test is often used to help doctors diagnose coronary artery disease because they can see how the heart is working. A nuclear stress test is a study in which a radioactive substance (like thallium) is injected into your bloodstream to show how blood flows through your arteries. Doctors can see if parts of the heart muscle are damaged or dead, or if there is a serious narrowing in an artery.

What are the heart valves?

There are four valves which control the blood flow through the heart. They swing open to allow blood through with each heart beat, and swing closed to prevent blood going back in the wrong direction. Deoxygenated (blue) blood returning from the body collects in the right atrium. Oxygenated (red) blood returning from the lungs collects in the left atrium and flows through the 'mitral valve' into the left ventricle. It is then pumped through the 'aortic valve' into the aorta and to the body.
