Coronary artery bypass surgery
Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG), mammary coronary bypass (MCB) - surgical treatment of ischemic heart disease in conditions of artificial circulation or on a working heart. More than 300 operations on open heart per year.
Coronary artery bypass surgery is a type of surgical operations aimed to improving the blood supply to the heart.
Coronary artery bypass surgery is a method of surgical treatment of the heart, which uses its own veins or arteries of a human to create a detour route for delivering oxygenated blood to the areas of the cardiac muscle that lack oxygen.
Coronary artery bypass surgery operation:
- improves the quality of life and reduces the severity of angina pectoris, until complete relief from heart attacks.
- improves the contractility of the heart after a myocardial infarction.
- reduces the risk of myocardial infarction.
- allows you to lead a more active lifestyle.
- increases the chances of a long life
Coronary artery bypass surgery operation is a "gold standard" of surgical treatment of ischemic heart disease. It can be performed both from sternotomous access and from mini- thoracotomy access.
Using mini-thoracotomy access, the length of incision is only 10-15 cm. This is sufficient for qualitative imposition of anastomosis. The advantage of this access is in shortening the term of postoperative rehabilitation, improving wound healing, reducing the number of postoperative complications. The method has its limitations, foremost related to the inability to reach certain areas of the heart. In this case, the operation is performed from the sternotomous access (the incision runs along the front surface of the thorax). In this case, the surgeon has the ability to perform revascularization in all the necessary areas of the myocardium.
In the Gomel Cardiology Center, the coronary artery bypass surgery operations are routine interventions. More than 300 such operations are performed annually.
