What is a Bypass Surgery?
The arteries that supply blood to the heart muscles sometimes get clogged by plaques (a build up of fat, cholesterol and other substances). This slows down or stops regular blood flow through the heart's blood vessels, leading to chest pain or 'Heart Attack'. Heart Bypass Surgery is a type of surgery, where the blood flow is ‘rerouted or bypassed' around the clogged arteries to improve the blood flow and oxygen to the heart.
What is "Beating Heart Surgery" ?
“Beating Heart Surgery" is a modern method of heart surgery in which cardio Thoracic Surgeons use a special device to stabilise the heart and operate without stopping it.
What is Angiography?
Angiography is an X-Ray examination of the blood vessels - called 'arteries'.
To make the arteries visible on X-Ray, a type of dye called "contrast" is injected.
A small, sterile flexible tube called a 'catheter' is inserted into the arterial system, usually in the region of the groin, where the artery is close to the skin and can be compressed when necessary against the hip bone situated immediately behind it. Sometimes other areas such as the arms are used. Contrast is then injected into the blood vessels and X-Ray images are obtained.
What is Angioplasty?
Angioplasty is a procedure where a tiny balloon is used to restore blood flow to the heart by reopening arteries closed or narrowed down by ‘plaques'. During an angioplasty procedure, the cardiologist punctures a blood vessel, often in the groin, and inserts a small, thin tube known as a catheter, which is then led to the heart. Attached to the end of the catheter is a balloon, which is inflated to widen the artery. A permanent stent is often put in place to keep the artery open before the balloon catheter is removed.
