Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) or Heart Bypass

This surgical procedure is performed to bypass blocked or narrowed coronary arteries, restoring proper blood flow to the heart muscle. During CABG, a healthy blood vessel from another part of the body is used to create a detour around the blocked artery, allowing oxygen-rich blood to reach the heart.

Angioplasty and Stenting

Angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used to open narrowed or blocked arteries. A thin catheter with a balloon tip is inserted into the artery, and the balloon is inflated to widen the artery and improve blood flow. Often, a stent (a small mesh tube) is placed in the artery to keep it open and prevent re-narrowing.

Valve Replacement or Repair

Heart valve surgery involves repairing or replacing damaged heart valves. Valves may become damaged due to conditions like valve stenosis (narrowing) or regurgitation (leakage). Surgeons can repair the valve by removing excess tissue or repairing the valve structure. In cases where repair is not possible, a valve replacement using mechanical or biological valves may be necessary.

Aneurysm Repair

Aneurysm repair is performed to treat weakened areas (aneurysms) in the heart’s blood vessels. If an aneurysm ruptures, it can lead to life-threatening bleeding. Surgical procedures like open repair or endovascular repair are used to reinforce the weakened artery wall and prevent rupture.

Varicose Vein Treatments

Varicose vein treatment aims to alleviate symptoms like pain and swelling while preventing complications. Options include compression therapy, lifestyle changes, sclerotherapy, endovenous ablation, and surgical procedures like vein stripping or phlebectomy, tailored to the severity of the condition and patient preferences. Consulting a healthcare professional is key for personalized treatment plans.

Varicose vein removal involves procedures such as sclerotherapy, endovenous ablation, or surgical options like vein stripping or phlebectomy to alleviate symptoms and improve the appearance of enlarged and twisted veins in the legs.

Other Heart Treatments

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (MitraClip): Minimally invasive procedure using a clip to treat mitral regurgitation by improving valve function, reducing leakage, and relieving symptoms.

Transcatheter Tricuspid Valve Repair (TriClip): Similar to MitraClip, this procedure targets tricuspid regurgitation by placing a clip to improve valve closure and reduce leakage, aiding in symptom management.

Carotid Endarterectomy: Surgical procedure to remove plaque buildup from the carotid artery, reducing the risk of stroke by restoring proper blood flow to the brain.

Carotid Stent Treatment: Minimally invasive procedure involving the placement of a stent in the carotid artery to widen the narrowed area and improve blood flow, reducing the risk of stroke.

Additionally, treatments for vascular conditions such as varicose veins, including endovenous ablation or sclerotherapy, are also common in cardiovascular care. These procedures help manage venous insufficiency and improve circulation in the legs. Overall, these surgical interventions play a crucial role in treating various heart and vascular conditions, improving patients’ quality of life and overall heart health.
