Types of Heart Surgeries in India

  1. Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG): Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) is also called Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery. It is one of the common types of Heart Surgery, it is done by cardiothoracic-surgeon to restore the blood flow to the Heart. It develops because of the Blocking & hardening of the Arteries (Veins). In CABG surgery, a vein is removed from a leg & one end is attached to the aorta or one of its major branches, and the other end is attached to the Clogged Artery immediately after the obstruction to restore blood flow.
  2. Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization (TMR): Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization is another type of procedure for Heart Surgeries. In this procedure, tiny Channels are made through the Heart Muscle as well as on the left side of the Heart’s Chamber (Ventricle). The Specialist uses the Laser Technique for Surgery. In this Surgery, the Heart-Lung machine is not used, as it is only done when the Heart is Beating & is full of Blood.
  3. Heart Valve Repair or Replacement: Heart Valve helps the blood to flow in a single stream. This surgery is basically carried out by an Aortic valve surgeon on Cardiac Valve (congenital). It is only done when the Valves of the heart are damaged or are Diseased, which causes Valve Dysfunction. If most of the Valves are damaged, then they should be replaced. Two kinds of Valve replacement can be used as a replacement – Mechanical Valves & Biological valves.
  4. Arrhythmia Treatment: Arrhythmia is also known as irregular Heartbeat. Arrhythmia treatment basically treated with Pacemaker. The pacemaker is an electronic device that is placed under the chest or abdomen, which results in Controlling Irregular Heart Beats. In this Surgery, the Specialist makes a small cut in Atria.

  1. Aneurysm Repair: As the name suggests, Aneurysm Surgery is carried out to repair the Aneurysm artery. In this, the Air lump is formed in the Artery of the Heart Muscle. The main reason for this lump is if the Artery wall is too weak. In this Surgery, a large cut is made in the Abdomen so that the Aorta is visible. Once it is visible, a twig is used to repair an aneurysm. The Specialist removes the weakest part of the artery with the help of a graft.
  2. Heart Transplant: Heart Transplant Surgery occurs when the person or patient is at end-stage heart failure or Coronary Heart disease. As in this procedure, the ailed heart is replaced with a healthy heart from a deceased patient. A heart Transplant is carried out when all the other procedures are failed. In this surgery, a cut is made into the patient’s breastbone to have full access to the heart. The patient is attached to the heart-lung bypass machine, which helps in blood circulation into the body, then the transplantation of a new heart is carried on. Once all test is completed after transplantation, the breastbone cut is closed with a strong wire, which will stay there for a lifetime.
