What is Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery?

Minimally invasive heart surgery is an approach that minimizes the size of incision(s) and the damage to the surrounding anatomy that is required for treating a heart problem. In contrast to open heart surgery where a massive, single cut is made in the chest’s wall (breastbone and the muscles surrounding it) minimally invasive surgery permits surgeons to utilize highly-specialized and frequently smaller instruments and cameras with lighted source to access the parts that require treatment.

Conditions can be Treated using Mini- Invasive technique

Minimally invasive surgery for the heart is frequently performed to treat a wide range of diseases related to

  • Aortic Valve
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Atrial Septal Defect

Minimally-invasive heart surgery isn’t the best option for every patient. Your doctor and your treatment team will collaborate with you to decide if it’s a viable option for treating your medical condition.

To determine if minimally invasive heart surgery is the most suitable choice for you, your physician will look over your medical history and request tests to learn more about your heart’s health.

Minimally-invasive heart surgery is an intricate procedure that requires both training and expertise. It is possible to be referred a medical centre that has specialists and surgeons that possess the necessary expertise for operating minimally surgical procedures.

Recovery after Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery 

The healing process after minimally coronary bypass that is not very invasive is not as intense as after the conventional CABG. The patient will stay for 5 days at the hospital recuperating after the operation. When you’re discharged, you’ll not be able to leave the house and you should rest until you get the approval of your doctor. You’ll be scheduled for another appointment within one week following the procedure.

The recovery process can take several weeks as you slowly gain the strength. You could be referred to the cardiac rehabilitation program to ensure you are able to safely return back to normal routine.

A minimally invasive heart procedure can aid in the reduction of symptoms caused by aortic-stenosis and improve the quality of your living.

Regular checkups are required with a physician to check your heart health. There are tests that can be conducted to evaluate your heart health.

The doctor might also suggest living a heart-healthy life including eating a balanced diet and exercising, reducing stress, and staying away from tobacco. Sometimes, a personalized training and education program specifically designed to improve your health following cardiac surgery (cardiac rehab) is recommended.
