Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery

There are many ways to reach the heart for surgery. Surgeons at Bona Dea International Hospital always try to use the smallest incision to provide the safest and most successful surgery. Surgical team will carefully compare the advantages and disadvantages of minimally invasive techniques with those of traditional surgery techniques. Surgeon will decide the best approach for patient based on several factors, including the type or heart disease you have and how severe it is; your age, medical history and lifestyle; and results of tests done before surgery.

Traditional heart surgery uses an incision through the middle of your chest, through the breast bone. The incision is about 15 to 20 cm long. This is the safest and most commonly used incision for patients who need complicated heart surgeries, reoperations, multiple coronary artery bypass procedures or complex aorta procedures.

A wide range of procedures can be done using minimally invasive techniques to help make recovery faster and more comfortable.

Sometimes, minimally invasive surgery includes a partial sternotomy. This involves cutting through part of the breast bone. When possible, the surgeon can avoid cutting the breast bone and, instead, make one or more small incisions through the muscles between the ribs. This technique is called a mini-thoracotomy.

Minimally invasive cardiac surgery can be used for:

  • Aortic valve replacement
  • Mitral valve replacement and repair
  • Tricuspid valve repair¬†(with mitral valve repair)
  • Ablation of atrial fibrillation¬†(if other cardiac surgery is required)
  • Atrial septal defect (ASD) repair
  • Patent foramen ovale (PFO) repair
  • Removal of cardiac tumors(Myxoma, Fibroelastoma)
  • Coronary Bypass Surgery (depends on patients condition)
