What is a Coronary Bypass Surgery?
Heart bypass surgery, or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, is used to improve blood flow to your heart. A surgeon uses blood vessels taken from another area of your body to bypass the damaged arteries.
Is Coronary Bypass Surgery a major surgery?
Yes, it is a major surgery. Because it concerns the heart, therefore there are many risks involved and it is a long surgery.
Coronary Bypass Surgery Techniques in Turkey / Types of X in Turkey
Your doctor will recommend a certain type of bypass surgery depending on how many of your arteries are blocked.
- Single bypass: Only one artery is blocked.
- Double bypass: Two arteries are blocked.
- Triple bypass: Three arteries are blocked.
- Quadruple bypass: Four arteries are blocked.
Your risk of having a heart attack, heart failure, or another cardiac issue depends on the number of arteries blocked. Blockage in more arteries also means that the surgery may take longer or become more complex.
How is a Coronary Bypass Surgery Done?
Usually coronary bypass surgeries are carried out via a long cut in the chest during this time a heart-lung machine keeps blood and oxygen flowing through the patient’s body. This is called on-pump coronary bypass surgery.
The Clinic Center surgeon lacerates the middle of the chest, along the breastbone. He or she then expands the the rib cage by opening it, to reveal the heart. After the chest is opened, the heart is briefly stopped with medicine and a heart-lung machine takes control to circulate blood to the body.
The surgeon takes a part of the healthy blood vessel, usually from inside the chest wall or from the lower leg, and connects the ends over and under the blocked artery so that blood flow is diverted around the narrowed part of the unhealthy artery.
How Long Does Coronary Bypass Procedure Take?
Coronary artery bypass graft procedure takes 3-6 hours. It could be longer than that when preparation and recovery times are added.
Who is a Candidate for Coronary Bypass Surgery?
People who have certain conditions may benefit from CABG, such as those who have obstructive coronary artery disease, a type of is chemic heart disease. Obstructive coronary artery disease occurs when plaque builds up in the coronary arteries that supply the heart with oxygen-rich blood.
How to Prepare for Coronary Bypass Surgery?
Preparation for a coronary artery bypass surgery in Turkey begins a couple of weeks before the surgery date.
Surgery will be CANCELLED if there is any possibility that the patient is pregnant or the patient has health problems(apart from the reason they came for)(the anaesthesiologist will check before the patient is taken to the operating room).
Two Weeks Before Surgery:
- Patients shouldn’t drink alcohol and should stop smoking. Nicotine affects the blood circulation and this can affect the result of your procedure and increase the risk of complication with anaesthesia.
One Day Before Surgery:
- STOP EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING AFTER MIDNIGHT.
Day of The Surgery:
- Patients can shower before going to the hospital.
- Patients shouldn’t have any makeup on. There shouldn’t be any product on their hair, nail varnish and false eyelashes need to be removed.
- Patients should pack a bag of loose-fitting clothes and comfortable shoes.
- If the patient has hair on their chest and they don’t want another person to shave it. They should shave it.
- Patients shouldn’t wear jewellery, or bring valuables to their surgery.
