Heart Bypass Surgery

I heard about Heart Bypass Surgery first time about nine years ago, when our former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad was got that treatment. Tonight I visit the site of University of Maryland Medical Center and read a very useful article about it. I found almost all the information that I want to know before about Coronary bypass surgery was answered there

Heart Bypass Surgery is one of the treatments for those who suffer from coronary artery disease (CAD). The patients will have chest pain and shortness of breast. They also feel the heaviness, tightness, pain, burning, pressure or squeezing. If you have these symptoms you should refer to your doctor immediately. One of the factors for CAD is cigarette smoking and this is another reason you should quite from smoking if you are a smoker

In the coronary artery bypass surgery, a blood vessel is removed or redirected from one area of the body and placed around the area of narrowing to make a detour. This procedure will restore blood flow to the heart muscle. These vessel can come from anywhere of the patient’s body and the surgeon will decide which part is the most suitable to take. The patients will never have any pain because they are receives anesthesia during the surgery

Now the surgeon uses the robot in the coronary bypass surgery. This robotic heart surgery allows the surgeon to perform the operation without being with the patient in the same room. For more information about the Heart Bypass Surgery, please visit the site. You will be satisfied
