Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) in Hyderabad

The Best Hospital for CABG Surgical Procedures in India 

The coronary artery bypass graft is a major surgical procedure. The team of the best doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other healthcare staff at CARE Hospitals do our best to treat heart-related issues with medications, lifestyle changes, or nonsurgical procedures before opting for surgery from the CABG Surgery Hospital in Hyderabad. 

We opt for surgery to address problems such as plaque buildup (responsible for blocking blood flow totally or partially in a coronary artery), heart failure, diseased or dilated blood vessels (for instance aorta), faulty heart valves, and abnormal heart rhythms. 

With the CABG procedure, CARE Hospitals’ team diverts blood around clogged or narrowed parts within the major arteries for improving the flow of oxygen supply and blood to the heart. 

CABG (coronary artery bypass graft surgery) is a process that involves treating CAD (Coronary artery disease). CAB narrows the coronary arteries which means it clogs blood vessels that are responsible for supplying nutrients and oxygen to the heart muscle. Further, it shortens the rich-oxygen blood supply to the heart. Here, we embrace CABG to correct this problem. 

Best diagnosis by CARE Hospitals

Doctors at CARE Hospitals opt for advanced procedures for the diagnosis of CAD before going for CABG surgery. Our doctors perform both blood tests and physical examinations if required and they also recommend tests like a cardiac nuclear scan, exercise stress test, and cardiac catheterization before proceeding towards performing the CABG surgery in Hyderabad. With catheterization, our doctors are able to know the disease severity as it indicates which artery is affected. This test is crucial to decide whether a person requires bypass surgery or not. 

Prevention and treatment opted by CARE Hospitals team 

CABG is an open-heart procedure - After performing all the required tests, doctors at CARE Hospitals place the patient under general anaesthetic. The surgeon starts the operation by conducting an incision down at the central area of the chest. 

It separates and divides the sternum (breastbone). Following this, tube association is done with the heart and these are also connected to the heart-lung machine which keeps the flow and supply of blood with oxygen good. Pumping of blood is done from the heart to a machine and further, it is backed to the body for circulation. Temperature, blood pressure, and breathing are regulated consistently. Sometimes, smaller incisions are done in the chest to avoid cutting of the breastbone. 

Aorta clamping by CARE Hospitals surgeons - Once taking over is done by the heart-lung machine for the heart, clamping of the aorta is done by the surgeons (here a major artery circulates blood from the heart to all over the body). Further, the team sews or grafts an artery or vein from another body part to the coronary artery that is blocked. The grafted arteries or veins connect the aorta to the coronary arteries. 

Next, these bypass the clogged coronary arteries for bringing blood to the heart which is oxygen-rich. The vein or artery that is used for grafting is generally fetched from the saphenous vein (it is in the leg). In this process, at least one artery or vein is often used as a graft. Usually, it is an internal mammary artery that is fetched from the right or left side of the wall of the chest (under the breastbone). 

The surgeons sew the mammary artery straight to the clogged coronary artery. In a few cases, doctors also use a mammary artery from the forearm or other portion of the side. Those arteries or veins are used that are not harmful to be removed and they are not essential in the original location.  

After finishing the grafting and removing the heart-lung machine, the lungs and heart take over again, and a surgeon reconnects the breastbone along with wires of stainless steel. In a single operation, one to six bypasses might be performed. 

CARE Hospitals are also laced with new techniques - In some cases, new techniques are required and we are fully equipped. For example, the beating-heart technique. This technique does not require a heart-lung machine but is also performed via a middle chest incision. Sewing of bypasses is performed directly on the heart without stopping it. This process is adopted by our surgeon when a patient has a risk of heart-lung machine complications. 

Good observation and care - After the CABG process at CARE Hospitals, the patients remain in the intensive care unit with deep monitoring for around 24 hours. At the completion of two or three days, most of the patients are allowed to take solid foods and they are discharged from the hospital within five to seven days. Once a week is completed, they are called for the removal of stitches. 

Crucial Lifestyle Changes Suggested by CARE Hospitals 

Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery boosts the blood flow to your heart but it is not a cure for coronary artery disease. This is crucial to follow the medication regimen as prescribed by the doctor from the best CABG hospital in Hyderabad. In addition, we also suggest some useful lifestyle changes that keep you at low risk of future heart issues. These changes comprise: 

  • Maintain cholesterol 

  • Stay away from smoking 

  • Keep a check on diabetes and high blood pressure 

  • Control weight gain and manage a healthy weight 

  • Always a heart-friendly diet

  • Be a part of a heart rehabilitation program 

  • Control anger and stress 

  • Take all medicines as prescribed 

  • Make follow-up visits to see your doctor regularly
