Coronary artery bypass surgery is performed to treat a blockage or thinning of one or more of the coronary arteries. Although coronary bypass surgery doesn’t cure the heart disease that caused the blockages yet it has the potential to improve the heart functionalities and reduce the risk of succumbing due to heart diseases.
Coronary Arteries Bypass Grafting (CABG) lowers the risk of heart attacks, and patients can remain free of these symptoms for as long as 10 to 15 years. It is a less invasive procedure, a wonderful alternative to traditional open heart surgery where the breastbone, or sternum, is sawn in half. Mr. Roberto Casula, cardiothoracic surgeon has great expertise in coronary artery bypass grafting both conventional and off pump.
Benefits and Advantages of Coronary Arteries Bypass Grafting
Since this operation was available, more than 150000 Americans have already undergone coronary artery bypass surgery. Perhaps, this is one of several major advances in the effort to manage cardiovascular disease.
There are many benefits in undergoing this surgery when compared to the traditional bypass procedures. Mr. Roberto Casula carried out research and publication in the fields of robotic and minimal invasive cardiac surgery and created wonders in the history of many patients.
A latest news shows that this famous UK cardio thoracic surgeon Mr. Roberto Casula performed a major heart surgery with robots using a phenomenon called totally endoscopic robotic coronary artery bypass. Upon receiving this surgery, the blocked coronary arteries are opened and it improves the blood supply to the heart. In many countries, the cardiologists perform over a million of cardiovascular procedures every year.
To Sum it up
The Coronary Arteries Bypass Grafting has long term success on patients with a lower risk of stroke and fewer heart rhythm problems.
