Who Needs a CABG Surgery Package?

Coronary bypass surgery is a treatment option for individuals who experience severe chest pain, have more than one diseased coronary artery, have a severely blocked main coronary artery, have had a previous angioplasty, or are diagnosed with angina and coronary artery disease.

What is the Age Limit for CABG Bypass Surgery?

There is no age limit to undergoing bypass surgery. Bypass surgery can be performed in elderly patients with new techniques introduced. However, coronary artery bypass graft surgery is common in patients of age 80 or more. Patients below 60 years of age had a lower risk of adverse outcomes than elderly patients.

Is Heart Bypass Surgery the Same as CABG?

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is also known as heart bypass surgery and is performed to restore blood flow to areas of your heart. These two terms are interchangeably used.

How Long Does it Take to Perform CABG Surgery?

Coronary bypass surgery typically takes between 3 and 6 hours and needs general anesthesia. The number of bypasses you require depends on where in the heart and how severe the blockages are. Surgery time depends on the specific type of CABG surgery and how many bypasses you require.

What Are the Chances of Having a Heart Attack After Bypass Grafting Surgery?

After a coronary artery bypass transplant, the heart that delivers blood to the heart and the coronary arteries are both vulnerable, especially in the first thirty days after the operation. Following a coronary artery bypass graft, some individuals may experience a heart attack either during or soon after the procedure.

When & Who Needs Angiography Surgery Package?

Angiography is recommended for those with symptoms of coronary artery disease or abnormal heart test results. It helps diagnose issues like narrowed arteries and assess blood flow. Symptoms such as chest, arm, or leg pain may indicate the need for this procedure.

Angiography vs Angiogram

The process of examining the arterial blood vessels to check for any kind of blockages in blood circulation is known as angiography. The images from this process are referred to as an angiogram.

In angioplasty, a catheter is inserted through the arterial blockage. Then, a special balloon attached to the catheter is inflated at the specific site using water pressure that is slightly higher than the blood pressure, hence, relieving the blockage and letting more blood flow through. Finally, the balloon is deflated and withdrawn.

Requirement of Cardiac clearance for Angiography (Including Non-Ionic Contrast)

Certain screening tests are done to get cardiac clearance before angiography. These tests aim to check if the coronary arteries are blocked or narrowed and to detect abnormalities of heart valves or heart muscles. You may be required to undergo different tests before the angiogram, including electrocardiogram, blood tests, cardiac CT, or chest x-ray.  This clearance allows the cardiologist to determine if you are fit enough for the surgery and to brief out potential risks with you.

Angiography Procedure Time

Angiography is done in a hospital radiology or X-ray department. It can take between 30 minutes and two hours, and you can go home the same day.

Chances of Having a Heart Attack after Angiography 

Though rare, you might have a heart attack during or after angioplasty. There is 1- 2% chance of having a heart attack or stroke after the procedure.

3. Angioplasty Surgery Package

Angioplasty

The cost of the angioplasty surgery package starts from USD 3500. However, the cost may vary with cities, hospitals, and the experienced surgeon.

Countries Providing Angioplasty Procedure Packages

Below are the countries where we offer the most affordable angioplasty procedure packages

Country Package Name Starting Price in USD Package Profile
UAE Angioplasty in UAE USD 7500 View Package
India Angioplasty in India USD 3500 View Package

When & why a Person Needs to Undergo an Angioplasty Procedure?

Angioplasty can help improve symptoms of blocked arteries like chest pain as well as shortness of breath. The procedure is also mostly used during a heart attack to immediately open a blocked artery and cut the amount of damage to the heart. People suffering from coronary artery disease and a heart attack might need to have coronary angioplasty. Angioplasty may also be used in other parts of the body that have narrow and blocked arteries like the neck, legs, arms, kidneys, and pelvis.

Is there Any Requirement for an Angioplasty Stent During Angioplasty?

The primary drawback of utilizing a bare metal stent is that the artery may narrow again in some situations. Drug-eluting stents, that are coated with medication that reduces the body’s abnormal tissue growth, can help prevent this issue. As a result, there is a decreased chance that a blood clot will eventually obstruct the stent and result in a heart attack.

Estimated Angioplasty Procedure Time

A coronary angioplasty generally takes from 30 minutes to 2 hours, though it may take longer. The procedure is carried out under local anesthesia wherein the patient remains completely awake.

Chances of Having a Heart Attack after Angioplasty Surgery

The stent procedure helps smoothen blood flow and keeps the artery open. However, there are chances that you may get a heart attack even after stenting surgery. Blood clots can form in stents even after the procedure and these clots may close the artery, causing a heart attack.

4. Cardiac Valve Replacement Surgery Package

Are Cardiac Valve Replacement & Heart Valve Replacement the Same?

Yes, cardiac valve replacement and heart valve replacement are the same. Both refer to the surgery performed to replace or repair diseased heart valves.

When and why a Person Requires Cardiac Valve Replacement Surgery?

A person requires cardiac valve replacement surgery when one or more valves begin to leak and blood leaks backward, which leads to the pumping of less blood in the right direction. Depending on your symptoms and the condition of the heart, your doctor may decide that the diseased valve needs to be surgically replaced. Heart valve repair is also an effective solution to valvular heart disease. In some cases, the damage is severe and a total replacement of the affected valve remains the only option.

Are there any Cognitive Problems after Heart Valve Surgery?

A recent systematic review revealed that after heart valve surgery, a person’s cognitive ability may be slightly reduced, at least in the short term.

Is PDA Device Closure the Same as PDA Closure?

No, these are not the same. PDA device closure uses a device to close a PDA. Other ways of PDA closure that do not involve a device include open-heart surgery, catheter procedures, and medications.

Requirements for PDA Closure 

Before PDA closure is performed, the patient has to undergo an evaluation process where all medical reports are evaluated thoroughly. The doctor may ask the patient to get some screening tests done to find any preexisting condition. This helps prevent any complexity during or after the procedure. Medications may be advised before the procedure is performed to make the patient ready for the treatment.

PDA Closure Surgery Time

PDA closure may take approximately 45 minutes. In some cases, it might take longer depending on the age of the patient, current health condition, post-surgery complications, type of surgery, etc.

PDA Closure Time in Premature Infants

Pacemaker Implantation Surgery

Pacemaker Implantation surgery package cost in India starts from USD 8650. This cost can vary from person to person depending upon the experience of doctors, the hospital, quality & type of pacemaker used, etc.

When Do We Go for Heart Pacemaker Surgery?

Pacemakers might be used by individuals who have heart problems, which cause the heart to beat too slowly. Two common problems that can lead to a slow heartbeat are heart block and sinus node disease. Some of the signs one needs pacemaker surgery are feeling fatigued, fainting, chest pain, and breathing problems.

Pacemaker Surgery Time

Pacemaker implantation surgery generally takes 1-2 hours, but it can take even longer if the patient has other heart surgery at the same time.

Does Anyone Require Cardiac Clearance for any of these Cardiac Surgeries?

Patients who have a history of cardiac conditions, a complex medical history, and current comorbidities typically require cardiac testing for surgical clearance. For all the above-mentioned cardiac surgeries, cardiac clearance is needed. Some common preoperative cardiac tests that pre-surgery patients usually require to undergo are Chest Radiography, Electrocardiography, and Cardiac Stress Test

Requirement of Cardiac Clearance for any Cardiac Surgery Packages

A person needs to have cardiac clearance before choosing any Cardiac Surgery Packages. The patient needs to share all medical history and test reports with the case manager. The case is discussed with the doctor and additional tests may be required. Post-analysis of the test reports, cardiac clearance is given to the patient if the doctor thinks that the patient is healthy enough to undergo cardiac surgery. Once clearance is given, the patient can go ahead with a Cardiac Surgery Package.

Do We Need to Make Arrangements for Blood from the Blood Bank Before Cardiac Surgery?

Most of the time, the patient needs to arrange with the hospital or local blood bank before the surgery in order to have directed donor blood. It is vital to note that there isn’t any evidence that getting blood from friends or family members is safer than getting it from the general public.

Does Health Insurance Cover all those Cardiac Procedures?

Yes, critical heart-related ailments, such as heart attack, Coronary Artery bypass surgery (CABG), heart valve surgery, etc. are covered by health insurance.

How Can We Make Our Life Stable After Undergoing any Cardiac Surgery?

Once you return home after cardiac surgery, returning to a normal routine may take time as your body systems have slowed because of surgery, medication, and less activity. Healing time would take at least 2-3 months. A slow increase in your overall activity can help promote healing and rebuild your body tone and strength. You might not have much appetite after the surgery, but it will increase as you recover. Avoid smoking as it is harmful to your heart, lungs, and new grafts. Never increase or stop the number of medications without the doctor’s advice. If you experience any kind of discomfort, report it to your nurse or nurse.
