What is Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery?
Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery is a safe and effective technique that is performed on or inside the heart using small incisions. It is an advanced surgical procedure with lower postoperative patient morbidity when compared with other traditional treatment approaches.
What are the Various Types Of Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery?
There are many types of cardiac procedures performed at the centre using Minimally Invasive Cardiac surgery, such as
- Atrioventricular Septal Defect Surgery
- Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
- Maze procedure for Atrial Fibrillation
- Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) repair
- Removal of Cardiac Tumours (Myxoma, Fibroelastoma)
- Valve Surgery
How Is Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery Performed?
The Minimally Invasive Cardiac surgery involves making one or more small incisions between the ribs. The surgery is then performed using advanced, high-definition endoscopic system that has a tiny camera attached to it, which is inserted into the incision, for providing a better view of the heart on the monitor. Surgeons then use special surgical tools
What are the benefits of Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery Over Open-Heart Surgery?
Minimally Invasive Cardiac surgery comes with many benefits over traditional open-heart surgery. These include:
• Less pain
• Lower risk of infection and bleeding
• Short incision, therefore, less scarring
• Shorter hospital stays after surgery
• Shorter recovery time
However, a doctor will first evaluate a patient on the basis of age, general health, medical history, and specific heart concern to decide which type of surgical treatment is best for the patient.
