The aim of coronary surgery is a direct increase of coronary blood flow which results in the improvement of the patient's quality of life, reduction of the risk of myocardial infarction and extension of the patient's life.
INDICATIONS FOR A CARDIOVASCULAR SURGERY INTERVENTION
- severe progressive postinfarction an effort angina;
- myocardial infarction;
- coronary channel disorder with an unfavorable prognosis;
- severe impairment of myocardial contractility.
CORONARY SURGERY PERFORMED AT THE RCMC
The Operative Cardiovascular Surgery Department performs coronary bypass surgery operations that may involve several variants of artificial blood circulation or off-pump operations.
- Coronary bypass surgery with the use of arterial and venous grafts (shunts)
The technique is widely employed around the world. One particular feature of this type of operations is the use of both thoracic artery and great femoral saphenous vein as grafts (shunts).
- Comprehensive arterial revascularization
The procedure of comprehensive arterial revascularization involves the use of only arterial grafts, that is, using left and right thoracic arteries or radial artery, as shunts.
- Coronary bypass surgery with the use of the non-touch technique
Application of the non-touch technique in patients with a pronounced artherosclerotic impairment enables physicians to avoid manipulations with the aorta, and thus significantly decreases the risk of postoperative complications.
- Treatment of coronary heart disease complications
Specialists of our Department effectively perform operations to cure complications associated with a previous myocardial infarction, such as left ventricular aneurysms, postinfraction defects of the interventricular septum, and ischemic mitral insufficiencies.
- diffuse damage of all the coronary arteries;
- radical decrease of the left ventricular ejection fraction down to 30% or lower resulting from a cicatrical affection;
- congestive cardiac insufficiency;
- chronic non-specific lung disorders;
- renal insufficiency;
- oncological diseases.
