How is open heart surgery performed?
Open heart surgery has been invented and used in early 20th century, and with the advancement of technology, other stages such as bypass were added to this method until it has become the current form. Of course, in many cases, open heart surgery is performed without bypass and on a beating heart. In open heart surgery, by making incisions in the chest, the surgeon can have wider access to the heart and use a series of procedures to treat various heart problems.
Open heart surgery is sometimes called traditional heart surgery. Today, many new heart procedures can be performed with only small incisions rather than wide openings. Therefore, the term “open heart surgery” can be misleading.
Actions such as repairing and reconstructing blood vessels, removing narrowness and congestion inside the vessels, replacing and transplanting new vessels, burning bleeding sites inside the heart, repairing and correcting heart valve problems, etc. are among the things that can be treated by Open heart surgery in Iran. This method, which is known as the most invasive method of heart surgery, is usually recommended to patients who have the tolerance of heavy and long-term surgery, bleeding caused by surgery, and complications during the recovery period.
When is open heart surgery necessary?
Open heart surgery may be performed to perform CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting). Coronary artery bypass grafting may be necessary for people with coronary artery disease. Coronary artery disease or coronary heart disease occurs when the blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart muscle become narrow and stiff. This is often called “hardening of the arteries.”
Hardening of the arteries occurs when fatty substances form plaques on the walls of the coronary arteries. This plaque narrows the arteries and makes it difficult for blood to flow. A heart attack can occur when blood cannot flow properly to the heart.
Doctors use open heart surgery to treat all types of heart disease. The reason for open heart surgery can be different. You may need open heart surgery for the following reasons:
Repairing or replacement of heart valves with artificial heart valves;
-Repairing damaged or abnormal areas of the heart;
-Implantation of medical devices that help the heart beat correctly;
-Replacing the damaged heart with a donor heart (heart transplant)
-Congenital heart defects, such as atrial septal defect (hole in the heart)
-Coronary Artery Disease
Types of open heart surgery in Iran
There are two ways to perform open heart surgery:
On pump: A heart-lung bypass machine is attached to the heart and temporarily takes over the heart and lungs. While it takes the blood away from the heart, it circulates the blood in the body. Then the surgeon surgery a heart that does not beat and has no blood flow. After surgery, the surgeon disconnects the device and the heart starts working again.
Off-pump: Off-pump bypass surgery is performed on a heart that continues to beat on its own. This method only works for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Your surgeon may call this beating heart surgery.
How to prepare for open heart surgery in Iran?
Tell your doctor about any medications you take, even over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbs. Notify them of any illnesses, including outbreaks of cold sores, colds, flu, or fever.
In the two weeks before surgery, your doctor may ask you to stop smoking and stop taking blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen.
Before you prepare for surgery, it is important to discuss your alcohol consumption with your doctor. If you usually drink more than 3 alcoholic drinks a day and stop right before surgery, you may experience alcohol withdrawal. This may cause life-threatening complications after open-heart surgery, including seizures or tremors. Your doctor can help you stop drinking alcohol to reduce the risk of these side effects.
When you arrive at the hospital for surgery, your healthcare provider will give you more detailed instructions.
