    HEART BYPASS SURGERY

    Heart Bypass Surgery is also known as Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG) or simply Bypass surgery. It is used to divert blood around clogged arteries in the heart. The arteries that bring blood to the heart muscle can become clogged by plaque. This can slow/stop blood flow through the heart’s blood vessels, leading to chest pain/heart attack. Patients usually stay in our partner hospitals for about a week or longer after surgery. 

    This time it is far longer than what is normally provided, giving your doctor adequate time to monitor your recovery. Meanwhile certain tests are performed to assess the condition of the patient. After this the patient is enrolled in a physician- supervised program of cardiac rehabilitation. This helps the patient in building back its confidence also teaches the patient stress management techniques.

    RF ABLATION HEART TREATMENT

     

    RF Ablation heart treatment is a nonsurgical procedure used to treat some types of rapid heart beating. It is most often used to treat supra ventricular tachyarrhythmias. These are rapid, uncoordinated heartbeats. A physician guides a catheter with an electrode at its tip to the area of heart muscle where there is an accessory pathway. The catheter is guided with real time, moving X-rays, displayed on a video screen. The procedure helps the doctor to place the catheter at the exact site inside the heart where cells give off the electrical signals that stimulate the abnormal heart rhythm. Then mild, painless radiofrequency energy is transmitted to the pathway. This destroys carefully selected heart muscles cells in a very small area and so, it stops the area from conducting the extra impules that caused the rapid heartbeats.

    ANGIOPLASTY

    Medically trained case managers provide guidance to you to ensure you receive the best medical care available for your procedure. Coronary angioplasty is a procedure that opens blocked arteries and allows blood to flow to your heart muscle. Angioplasty is not a surgery. It opens a clogged coronary artery by inflating a tiny balloon in it. General anesthesia isn’t needed, so you are awake during the procedure. The doctor threads a tiny tube through a blood vessel in the arm or going up to the involved site in the artery. The tube has a tiny balloon or the end. When the tube is in place, the doctors inflate the balloon to push the plaque outward against the wall of the artery. 

    This widens the artery and restores blood flow. Angioplasty is usually combined with implantation of a small metal coil called a stent in the clogged artery to help it open and decrease the chance of it narrowing again. The stent looks like a very tiny coil of wire mesh. Stents can be coated with medication that’s slowly released to help prevent arteries from re-clogging. These coated stents are called drug-eluting stents, in contrast to non coated version, which are known as “bare metal” stents. You will remain hospitalized for 2-5 days, while your heart is monitored and your vital signs are checked frequently. You should be able to return to work or your normal routine a week after angioplasty. .

    Heart VALVE Replacement

    Heart valve surgery is required when a heart valve doesn’t work properly i.e. a valve is not able to open or close properly. If a valve doesn’t open all the way, less blood moves through to the next chamber. If a valve doesn’t close tightly, blood may leak backward. With latest advancements in technology, a very small incision is made. This helps in reducing blood loss, trauma and length of hospital stay. Two kinds of prosthetic heart valves are available. Mechanical Valves:- Created from manmade materials. Lifetime therapy with anticoagulant / blood thinners is needed when these valves are used. Biological Valves:- They are taken from pig, cow or human donors. Your doctor will talk with you about choosing the best valve for you.
