CARDIOLOGY

  • 1.  CABG - Your doctor uses coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) to treat a blockage

    or narrowing of one or more of the coronary arteries to restore the blood supply to your

    heart muscle.

    2.  Off pump CABG - Off-pump coronary artery bypass or "beating heart" surgery is a form of

    coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery performed without

    cardiopulmonary bypass (heart-lung machine) as a treatment for coronary heart disease.

    3. Valve repair - Heart valve surgery is used to repair or replace diseased heart valves.

    4.  Closed heart surgeries - In closed-heart surgeries, it is still necessary to open the chest,

    but not to stop the heart or use the heart-lung bypass machine. Most closed-

    heart procedures deal with major blood vessels, such as the aorta or pulmonary arteries.

    5.  VSD repair - A hole in the septum between the heart's two lower chambers is called

    a ventricular septal defect (VSD).This surgery refers to the repairing of ventricular septal

    defect.
