Procedures
Bentall Procedure

A Bentall procedure is a surgery conducted to correct problems associated with the largest artery in the body, the aorta. The aorta carries oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Thus, any problem with this important artery may affect the rest of the body and cause serious complications.

A Bentall operation is conducted to correct problems associated with the aorta. Some of the problems that are resolved with the help of a Bentall surgery include the following:

  • Marfan’s syndrome: It is a congenital disorder characterized by weakening of the aortic wall
  • Aortic aneurysm: It is characterized by the widening of the aortic valve
  • Aortic dissection: It refers to the tearing of the inner layer of the aorta
  • Aortic regurgitation: It is a condition in which the aortic valve is not able to close properly
CABG - Redo

In the United States Coronary artery bypass graft which is a common kind of an open heart surgery if found to be executed in good numbers. Cardiothoracic surgeons are the doctors who are involved in performing the procedure on the concerned patients. This kind of procedure is very appropriate for coronary heart diseases which can become a life-threatening issue later.

About CABG - Redo

Awaxy substance called plaque hets deposited in good amount in the coronary arteries of the heart, they supply oxygen to the heart. With time the plaque starts hardening and eventually ruptures and breaks open. This plaque interferes with blood flow as arteries grow narrow at that region. A blood clot develops when the plaque ruptures open on the surface.  The artery gets blocked if the blood clot developed is very large. This can be the cause of heart attack in a later stage becoming the cause of a life risk.

Symptoms of CABG - Redo

When the heart gets deprived of rich oxygenated blood there is chest pain and discomfort felt by the patient. This pain is referred to as angina. Breathlessness and fatigue are some of the other kinds of problems that are associated with coronary heart disease. In worse case scenario a heart attack which can be life-threatening may affect the patient severely

About CABG - Redo

Coronary artery bypass surgery aims at improving the general blood circulation to the heart. A healthy artery or vein is taken the body and is grafted or connected to the blocked coronary artery for the purpose of bypassing. This artery or vein goes around the blocked portion of the coronary artery and establishes a new path for the blood to flow to the heart thus reducing the chance of a heart attack. In one surgery surgeons can bypass multiple coronary arteries. Severe blockages can be treated with this procedure.

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)

What is Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a type of an open heart surgery that intends to improve the flow of blood to the heart. It involves the placement of a coronary artery bypass graft, which is retrieved from a healthy artery in the body, and placed in the position of the blocked portion of the artery that supplies blood to the heart. CABG surgery is a complex, yet common procedure.

A waxy substance called plaque may deposit in good amount in the coronary arteries of the heart over a period of time. As time advances, the plaque starts hardening and eventually ruptures and breaks open. The plaque interferes with blood flow as arteries grow narrow at the affected region. A blood clot develops when the plaque ruptures. The artery may get blocked completely is the size of the clot is big enough to stop the flow of blood to the heart. This may eventually lead to serious events such as heart attack and also put the individual at the risk of death.

The person may experience chest pain and discomfort when the heart is deprived of rich oxygenated blood This pain is referred to as angina. Breathlessness and  fatigue are some of the other problems associated with coronary heart disease.

How does CABG improve the heart condition

Coronary artery bypass surgery aims at improving the overall blood circulation to the heart. A part of healthy artery or vein from another part of the body is taken and is grafted or connected to the blocked coronary artery for bypass. This artery or vein goes around the blocked portion of the coronary artery and establishes a new path for the blood to flow to the heart, thus reducing the chance of a heart attack. In a single surgery, surgeons can bypass multiple coronary arteries. Severe blockages can be treated with this procedure.

CABG is conducted when there are one or two blockages in the artery. High risk CABG is conducted when there are multiple blockages in the artery and the blood flow to the heart is severely restricted.
