Plan Affordable Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery in India

by Rachel Smith India Cardiac Surgery Site Consultants Pvt. Ltd.


Minimally invasive heart surgery in India or MIDCAB is the minimally invasive approach to the conventional Bypass Surgery, for correction of the coronary heart disease. It is also referred to as "keyhole" heart surgery. The procedure is performed on a beating heart and thus the heart-lung machine is not needed, as the heart is not made to stop pumping. The surgery is done by making a small, 2 to 3-inch incision on the left side of the chest. The surgeon then removes the internal mammary artery, either directly or by using a Da-Vinci robotic system. This harvested internal mammary artery is then stitched to the coronary arteries. A major advantage of minimally invasive heart surgery is the recovery time of a patient; some patients have improved and resumed playing the athletics in just a matter of weeks.

Candidates for minimally invasive heart surgery

The minimally invasive heart Surgery in India can be performed on patients whose blockages can be bypassed through a small opening on the left side of the chest. It is also suggested for patients for whom the use of the bypass machine is risky. Such patients include those with kidney disorders or failure, lung diseases, or peripheral vascular diseases.

Type of minimally invasive heart surgery

Robot-Assisted Heart Surgery: In robot-assisted heart surgery, the exact manners performed in the traditional open chest operation are duplicated by the surgeons using the robotic arms, instead of their hands. During this surgery, the surgeons work at the remote console and view the heart in the magnified high definition 3-D view on the video monitor.

Thorascopic Surgery: During this surgery, the surgeon inserts a long, thin tube known as the horoscope that contains tiny high definition video camera into a small incision in the chest. The surgeon then repairs the heart with the help of the long instruments that are inserted through small incisions between the ribs.
