CABG Bypass Surgery in India
CABG Bypass Surgery in India is a surgery which improves the flow of blood to the heart. The heart surgeons use the CABG Bypass Surgery in India to treat the patient with severe coronary heart disease (CHD). CABG Bypass Surgery in India is also known as open heart surgery and this is done when all other medications are failed to relief the symptoms and there are multiple blockages in more than one artery and angioplasty is not a good option.
CABG Bypass Surgery in India is basically required when cholesterol level becomes high and it leads to the formation of a waxy substance known as plaque inside the coronary arteries. Coronary arteries are the arteries which supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart. If the plaque is hardened then it narrows the coronary arteries and reduces the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart which can cause severe chest pain.
A blood clot can be formed on the surface of the heart if the plaque ruptures. A large blood clot can completely block the flow of the blood through the coronary artery and this is the most common cause of a heart attack.
The CABG Bypass Surgery in India is a procedure which involves taking the vein from the patient’s body and grafts it in the manner that it will provide the alternate way for blood flow from the aorta to coronary artery bypassing the narrowed segment. In this way, the coronary artery disease part is bypassed and supplied the blood flow to the heart without any obstruction.
CABG Bypass Surgery in India is performed under general anesthesia and it will take around 3 to 6 hours to complete the surgery. To gain the access to the heart the chest cavity should be opened and this can be done by running the incision on the sternum. The surgeons will stop the heart by chemical means and hypothermia and attach the graft to its suitable size. With the help of heart-lung-machine, the circulation is maintained and the graft goes into the aorta and to the other end into the coronary artery beyond the narrowed part. The chest is then closed and dressed.
The patient can recover after the CABG Bypass Surgery in India in 2 to 3 days and the doctors will prescribe some medications to control the pain and to prevent the unwanted blood clotting. The patient can resume his/ her daily activities within 2 to 3 days including walking, eating regular food etc. For full recovery from the CABG Bypass Surgery in India will take around 6 to 8 weeks.
