Heart Surgery

Heart surgery is also known as Cardiac surgery. It is a surgery on the heart and/or great vessels performed by a cardiac surgeon. Frequently, it is done to treat complications of ischemic heart disease (for example, coronary artery bypass grafting), correct congenital heart disease, or treat valvular heart disease created by various causes including endocarditis. It also includes heart transplanatation.

Here are many different types of heart surgery. Surgeries may be used to

Repair or replace the valves that control blood flow through the heart's chambers.
Bypass or widen blocked or narrowed arteries to the heart.
Repair aneurysms, or bulges in the aorta, which can be deadly if they burst.
Implant devices to regulate heart rhythms.
Destroy small amounts of tissue that disturb electrical flow through the heart.
Make channels in the heart muscle to allow blood from a heart chamber directly into the heart muscle.
Boost the heart's pumping power with muscles taken from the back or abdomen.
Replace the damaged heart with a heart from a donor.
