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.
Minimally invasive heart surgery involves making small incisions in the right side of the patient’s chest to reach the heart between the ribs, rather than cutting through the breastbone, as is done in open-heart surgery.
Minimally invasive heart surgery can be performed to treat a variety of heart conditions. Compared with open-heart surgery, this type of surgery might mean less pain and a quicker recovery for many people.
Minimally Invasive Surgery has several advantages.
Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG) is performed as both open-heart and MICS. This procedure restores the compromised blood supply to the heart caused due to coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD results in blocked blood supply to the heart causing agonizing chest pain or angina, heart failure and death if left untreated.
Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is a form of bypass surgery that can create new routes around narrowed and blocked coronary arteries, permitting increased blood flow to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle. Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is an option for selected groups of patients with significant narrowing and blockages of the heart arteries. The bypass graft for a CABG can be a vein from the leg or an inner chest-wall artery. CABG surgery is one of the most commonly performed major operations. Coronary artery disease develops because of hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) that supplies blood to the heart muscle. Diagnostic tests prior to (and after) CABG include the electrocardiogram (ECG), stress test, echocardiogram (ECHO), and coronary angiography (CAG).
CABG is performed to restore blood flow to the heart. This relieves chest pain and ischemia, improves the patient’s quality of life, and, in some cases, prolongs the patient’s life. The goal of the procedure is to relieve symptoms of coronary artery disease, enable the patient to resume a normal lifestyle, and to lower the risk of a heart attack or other heart problems.
Coronary artery bypass graft surgery may be performed on patients who:
Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS) as the name suggests, requires minimal (small) incision (opening) on the body to perform the complete surgery. This method has revolutionised performance of cardiac surgeries. MICS has emerged as a successful operation, worldwide, over the past two decades, with innovation in instrumentation and better computer-aided imaging, advancement in digital high-precision cameras, and development in the field of robotics and ergonomic digital instrumentation. In this method, the doctor accesses the heart through few small incisions without cutting any bone, by only splitting the muscle. This is still relatively a new technique in India.
Minimally Invasive Surgery has several advantages such as:
Minimally invasive heart surgery (MICS) is done through a small incision in the chest (direct less invasive access heart surgery). Most cardiac operations today are performed through a sternotomy, which involves splitting the entire breastbone. MICS encompasses a variety of operations performed through incisions that are substantially smaller and less traumatic than the standard sternotomy. In all types of minimally invasive procedures, surgeons reach the patient’s heart through small incisions (about 3 to 4 inches compared to 8 to 10 sternotomy incisions) between the ribs of the chest.
Most minimally invasive procedures use a heart-lung bypass machine. The machine keeps blood moving through the patient’s body during the procedure.
Similar to open-heart surgery the surgeon then repairs the patient’s heart using long specialised instruments inserted through small incisions between the ribs.
The patient generally spends 2 – 3 days in the cardiac care unit (CCU) where they are given fluids, nutrition and medications through intravenous (IV) lines. Other tubes drain urine from the bladder and drain fluid and blood from the heart and chest and the patient may also be given oxygen.
The treatment team monitors the patient’s condition and watches for signs of infection in the incision sites. All vitals are checked frequently.
The treatment team may instruct the patient to walk regularly to gradually post 3 days surgery to increase activity and to do breathing exercises as they recover.
The doctor gives instructions to follow during recovery, such as properly caring for incisions, taking medications, and managing pain and other side effects after surgery.
Not everyone is a candidate for minimally invasive heart surgery. The doctor and cardiac surgery team takes the decision depending on patient’s condition.
To determine whether the patient is a candidate for minimally invasive heart surgery, the doctor is likely to conduct a physical examination, review the patient’s medical history and perform tests.
Minimally invasive heart surgery is a complex surgical procedure that requires training and experience and is performed by surgeons and a surgical team who have the needed expertise in conducting minimally invasive procedures
Cardiac illnesses can take control of a patient’s life if not treated early, and surgery often helps give control back to the heart patient. Minimally invasive heart surgery isn’t an option for everyone but for those who can have the surgery, the potential benefits when compared with open-heart surgery can include:
Many types of heart procedures may be conducted with minimally invasive heart surgery, including:
After minimally invasive heart surgery, the patient has an improved quality of life and reduced symptoms.
The things that you do and the choices you make can greatly reduce your risk of more heart problems in future, including heart attack.
The most important things you can do to reduce your risk of more heart problems are to:
People with diabetes should generally aim to maintain their blood glucose levels within the normal non-diabetic range and follow individual advice from their doctor.
