cardiothoracic surgery has come a long long

Cardiothoracic surgery has come a long, long way in the past few years. Cardiac

surgery, which is performed on the heart or its great vessels to treat conditions of

ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease due to endocarditis or other causes, or to

correct congenital heart problems, has existed since the late nineteenth century. The

first heart surgery performed successfully with no complications was done in 1896, to

repair a stab wound to the heart. It was soon realized that repairing intracardiac

problems required an environment in which blood flow and heart action were minimal,

which entailed stopping the heart and draining the blood. The first successful congenital

heart defect surgery utilizing hypothermia was performed in 1952; a year later, the first

successful cardiac surgery with local anesthesia was performed. Visit this

Open heart surgery, in which the patient's chest is opened and the heart is operated on,

was performed in 1953. In this type of procedure the heart itself may or may not be

opened (the term "open" refers to the chest, not the heart). It was soon realized that

hypothermia was unsuitable since it deprives the body, and especially the brain, of

needed blood for too long a period. In the mid 1950's Gibbon-type pumps were

developed to oxygenate the blood and allow for longer procedures with less risk to the

patient. In the 1990's cardiac surgeons began performing off pump bypass surgeries,

which are triple bypass Illinois operations in which the heart continues beating during

the surgery. This new technique made for lessened post-operative problems and gave

overall results which were more satisfactory than the older methods. Click here

the most important new development in heart

The most important new development in heart surgery is known as robotic heart

surgery, in which a machine performs the surgical procedure under the control of a

human surgeon. The chief advantage of this method is the size of the incision needed.

Where in older forms of surgery the incision had to be large enough to accommodate

the surgeon's hands, this new minimally-invasive surgery requires only 3 small incisions

for the robot's smaller "hands" to enter. These smaller incisions reduce the trauma to

the patient's body, which in turn means lessened pain and scarring. Also the smaller

incisions produce faster healing, with reduced infection risk. This adds up to a shorter

hospital stay and faster return to normal, everyday activities. Instead of taking months

for the patient to recover, many patients can resume enjoying athletics in a few weeks.

The new minimally-invasive techniques have lowered mortality rates drastically. As an

example, congenital heart defect repairs now average about 5% mortality. Get More
