FAQ's

What is Open Heart Surgery?

When a heart-lung machine is used for surgery it is called open-heart surgery. This is used for valve repair or replacement. Certain birth defects and certain coronary artery bypass surgeries. This heart-lung machine takes over the function of the heart and lungs which are stopped, thus enabling the surgeon to perform the surgical procedure in a precise and accurate fashion on a motionless & bloodless heart.

What is Closed Heart Surgery?

When the heart-lung machine is not required for the surgery, it is called closed heart surgery, such as closed mitral valvotomy, PDA closure, bypass surgery on beating heart etc. Here the heart keeps beating and supports the body circulation totally on its own.

What do you mean by Coronary Arteries?

The heart muscle (myocardium) is fed by the coronary arteries, which begin at the aorta. These arteries bring oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle. Three main coronary arteries lie on the surface of the heart. They divide into smaller branches so that each part of the heart muscle receives nutrients. The left coronary artery starts with a short part called the left-main. The left main divides into the left anterior descending branch (LAD) and the circumflex branch (LCx). The left anterior descending branch feeds the left side and front of the heart, and the circumflex takes blood to the back of the heart on the left side. The right coronary artery (RCA) feeds the right side of the heart and has branches, which extend to the back.

What do you mean by Coronary Artery Disease?

Narrowed coronary arteries mean the amount of blood that reaches the heart muscle is reduced. Fatigue, tightness in the chest or a peculiar crushing type chest pain called “Angina Pectoris” may accompany the decreased blood flow. Exercise and emotional stress cause the heart to need fTlore blood and may produce these symptoms. Symptoms are relieved by rest or keeping tablet Sorbitrate under the tongue If a coronary artery closes suddenly, usually due to the formation of a blood clot, blood flow to a part of the heart may stop completely. In this case, some of the heart muscle may be permanently damaged. This is often accompanied by severe chest pain that won’t go away. This is called “myocardial infarction” or more commonly, a heart attack. The heart muscle can heal, but muscle is replaced by scar tissue that does not contract. If the scar is small, recovery can be complete. If the scar is large it may permanently affect the heart functions

How to relieve blockages in the Coronary Arteries?

Plaques that block the coronary arteries usually occur in localized portions of the arteries. When the disease is localized in one or two arteries, the blockage can sometimes be opened by stretching or dilating. This is done using a small balloon. This procedure is called PTCA (angioplasty or ballooning). When the blockages are more complicated and involve more coronary arteries, coronary artery bypass surgery is usually recommended. Such an operation will establish new pathways to carry the blood around the blockages

What is CABG (Coronary artery Bypass Graph Surgery)?

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a form of surgery that improves the heart’s blood flow. It’s used by people with serious heart disease (CHD), also known as coronary artery disease.
