Doctor prescribed CABG for your DAD? You are staying out of India and wondering the cost of Bypass Surgery in India? Now Relax and come to DESUN Hospital. With 2 Digital Cath Labs, 6 Dedicated Cardiac Operating Theatres, 54 Post-operative Cardiac ITU beds, DESUN performs the highest number of advanced heart procedures and surgeries with the highest success rate at a cost which is lowest in Kolkata,India. With top class cardiologists and cardiac surgeons adopting the latest technology in heart surgeries DESUN is considered as the No. 1 in heart operations. One such example is the “Beating Heart Arterial Bypass Surgery”. With this technique during bypass (CABG) the heart is not stopped and it continues to beat throughout the operation. Moreover, instead of taking the veins from the leg (as is done in other places), arteries from the chest & arms are used for this bypass. Normally Vein Bypass lasts for 10 years whereas, Arterial Bypass helps you live longer as it lasts for 25 years (arteries being better than veins). Also there are no scars on the legs of the patient.
Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting is an operation in which a blood vessel is taken from your chest, leg or forearm and grafted (attached) to your coronary artery to let blood “detour” past a narrowing or blockage in this artery. It is used to improve blood flow to your heart muscle, when blood flow is reduces due to coronary heart disease (CHD). CABG is a common and successful way to improve the health of people with CHD.
What is “Beating Heart Technique” in CABG?
When heart bypass surgery (CABG) started in the 1980’s the technique adopted was stopping the heart and transferring the heart functions to a machine called “Heart Lung Machine”. After the heart bypass surgery is completed the heart is reactivated and the heart functions are shifted back from the “Heart Lung Machine”to the original human heart. In the late 1990’s a new technique was developed in USA and later adopted in India which is commonly called “Beating Heart Technique”. Here the portion of the heart where bypass needs to be done is slowed down by a special equipment known as “STAR”. The surgeon then performs the bypass with the heart beating very slowly. After the bypass the STAR is removed and the portion of the heart which was slowed down then starts beating normally. There are tremendous advantages of “beating heart technique” in terms of faster recovery, lower risks and so on. However, the Heart Lung Machine is still kept as a stand-by during all heart bypass surgeries (CABG) even when beating heart technique is used, so that the surgeon canrevert back to the conventional technique, if so demanded. At DESUN over 95% heart bypass surgeries are performed by this “Beating Heart Technique”. Even in USA they have not been successful in performing more than 70% of the cases using this technique. The skill of the entire surgical team including cardiac surgeon, cardiac anesthetist, perfusionist, medical physicist, OT nursing, OT technicians has to be of very high level to perform “Beating Heart Bypass Surgeries” on such a consistent basis as in DESUN.
What is LIMA-RIMA Y?
This procedure is done on beating heart (off-pump), it uses only arteries as grafts and not veins (total arterial bypass grafts). It uses the 2 mammary arteries of the chest to construct a “Y” shaped graft and hence, no cuts are required to be made on the patient’s legs or arms. Arterial Bypass helps you live longer as it lasts for 25 years.
Why do I need Bypass Surgery?
You need bypass surgery because one or more of your coronary arteries has become too narrow or blocked, and enough blood cannot reach your heart muscle. This is probably because you have CHD. Your doctor will discuss your treatment options with you. He will tell you if bypass surgery is the most suitable form of treatment to improve blood flow to your heart muscle and reduce your risk of further heart problems.
What are the benefits of bypass surgery?
Bypass surgery will improve blood flow to your heart muscle and reduce your symptoms of CHD, such as angina. In time, you may feel healthier and active than you were before the surgery. Your risk of further heart problems will also be reduced to a great extent.
