Watch Dr. Yugal K Mishra (Head of Cardiac Sciences) speak about types of Heart Surgeries, its procedures, outcomes, and educate about Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, the procedure that the hospital has adopted.
Manipal Hospitals, Delhi, has brought world-class technology in India to provide the best cardiac care to its patients. Along with the people of Delhi, this will benefit the heart patients across many states.
A heart transplant is a surgical procedure that involves replacing the failing, diseased heart with a healthier heart. This procedure is for patients with end-stage heart failure or severe coronary artery disease or any other heart conditions who do not get relieved through medications or other surgical interventions.
Congestive heart failure (CHD) or heart failure is a condition where the heart muscles are weakened or there is a defect in the heart leading to insufficient pumping of blood. Insufficient pumping of blood causes an improper supply of oxygen and nutrients to the different parts of the body. This, in turn, causes excessive tiredness and breathing difficulties in carrying out daily activities such as walking or climbing stairs.
Cardiac surgeries are mostly performed by the process of sternotomy. It involves splitting the entire breastbone. Now with innovation and advancement in medical sciences, minimally invasive surgery (also called keyhole surgery) is being practised. To reach the heart between the ribs, this advanced surgery involves making small incisions in the right side of your chest, instead of cutting through the breastbone, as is done in heart surgery. It leaves your breastbone intact, so you heal faster and recover faster. In general 8 to 10 sternotomy incisions are carried out during open-heart surgery. The minimally invasive surgery has only 3-4 incisions, in contrast to this. Medically supervised, technologically advanced robotic instruments are used in performing the surgery to project the dexterity of the surgeon's hands through these small incisions.
