The most common conditions in which heart surgery is performed are – valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, complications associated with ischemic heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, aneurysms etc.
Also known as Bypass Surgery or open heart surgery, the procedure involves re-routing the blood flow using a blood vessel from another body part to channel blood flow to the blocked area. The surgery is used in relieving angina in patients who have not benefited from medication and are not eligible to undergo angioplasty.
The surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used for correction of coronary heart disease. It is called as “keyhole” heart surgery or endoscopic heart surgery. The surgery involves making a small incision on left side of the chest. The surgery is done on a beating heart and does not require a heart-lung machine.
The surgery is used to open blocked arteries of the heart. Angioplasty widens the narrowed or obstructed blood vessels that have resulted from atherosclerosis. A balloon catheter is inserted through the narrowed vessels and is inflated to crush the fatty deposits to improve the blood flow and then deflate and withdrawn.
A pacemaker is a small device used to control abnormal heart rhythms. The device is placed under the skin of the chest or abdomen and prompts the heart to beat at a normal rate. The implants are used to treat heart rhythms that are too irregular.
