Types of Heart Surgery in India’s Best Cardiac Hospitals
January 25, 2018
Year’s back indigenous people used to visit different countries for their medical care and specially for the heart surgery but now even the international patients are visiting India for heart surgery in India.
The main reason behind their visit to India for medical care is not because their countries are not providing the medical services that we are providing, but not in such fine price of the medical care. As compared to other countries, India provides reasonable price for the heart surgery with excellent health services which includes recovery at home or in the hospital facility. Be it is the common or the complex our heart surgeons are experienced to handle any case using the latest technology. These are the reason why more and more oversea patients are coming to India for heart surgery.
Different types of heart surgery are used to fix different heart problems. : -
Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is used for people with severe coronary artery disease (CAD). In CAD, plaque builds up in coronary arteries and limits the blood flow to your heart muscle. During CABG, surgeon takes a vein or an artery from your leg, your chest, or any other part of your body and connects it to the blocked artery. This allows oxygen-rich blood to reach the heart muscle through the grafted artery.
More than 500,000 Bypass surgeries are done in India every year. CABG improves blockage of blood flow to the heart which causes angina, shortness of breath, and can even heart attack.
Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization
Transmyocardial laser revascularization (TLR) is used to treat angina if it not cured by CABG or any other treatments. During TLR, the surgeons make channels in the heart muscle using lasers to allow oxygen-rich blood to flow from a heart chamber directly into the heart muscle.
This type of heart surgery isn't very common.
Open-heart surgery is surgery where surgeons operate on the heart with chest wall. "Open" refers to the chest, not the heart. Depending on the type of surgery, the heart may be opened too. Open-heart surgery is used to bypass blocked arteries in the heart, repair or replace heart valves, fix atrial fibrillation, and transplant hearts.
Your doctor will decide whether you should have this type of surgery or not. He or she will carefully consider your heart problem, age, overall health, and other factors that may affect the surgery.
Valve Repair or Replacement
The heart's valves make the blood flow in on direction. Healthy valves open and close in a precise way as the heart pumps blood. There are set of leaflets which allow the blood to pass from the heart chambers into the arteries. Then the leaflets close tightly to stop blood from flowing back into the chambers.
Heart surgery is done to fix leaflets that don't open as wide as they should. To fix these problems, surgeons either repair the valve or replace it. Replacement valves are taken from animals, made from human tissue, or made from man-made substances.
Heart Transplant at Best Cardiac Hospitals
In heart transplant, the diseased heart is replaced with a healthy heart from a deceased donor. Heart transplants are done when patient’s heart is so weak or damaged that they can't pump enough blood to meet the body's needs.
Today, open heart surgery or minimally invasive heart surgery can be done keeping in mind the patient's heart problem, general health, and other factors.
