What you don't know about closed bypass surgeries
When we hear about Heart Surgery, we all get scared and look for ways to escape. They are such remedies that sometimes we go from doctor to doctor and hope that someone will say, "You don't need surgery." In fact, every day we avoid it, the risk increases a little more and we may lose the chance of surgery. However, "How can I get through this surgery more easily?" It is the best attitude to engage in research because; In recent years, what we call minimally invasive heart surgery has made it possible to perform these surgeries by minimizing the area and without using a heart-lung machine, that is, without stopping the heart. So, what advantages does this provide?
Reduction of surgical trauma and blood loss
Not opening the frontal bone of the chest or not opening it at all provides great comfort for the patient. It is like the difference between a needle sticking and a big nail sticking. Since the opened area is very small, bleeding will be less. Additionally, postoperative pain is reduced.
Quick recovery and early discharge
The small wound heals quickly, especially if there is no bone or muscle incision. The patient can stand up early. He can lie down and turn over in any position he wants in bed. He can meet his daily needs using his hands and arms. He can wear his seat belt and does not have to avoid a blow to his chest.
Better cosmetic appearance
In these surgeries performed under the armpit, under the breast or under the breast, the patient may not even be able to see the surgery site. Within a month, the procedure site becomes unclear. It is especially preferred by young people, women and children.
Preventing sexual and social problems
In open heart surgeries, where the heart is stopped and the sternum is cut from beginning to end, many organs, especially the brain and heart, are affected by the heart-lung pump. Post-surgery hair loss, personality changes, sexual reluctance and dysfunction may occur. In addition, sexual intercourse until the frontal bone of the chest is fused. is banned. However, none of these problems occur in aesthetic surgeries performed while the heart is working. The patient returns to normal performance in a short time.
Low risk of infection
The immune system is not damaged, the blood is not subjected to mechanical trauma and the blood cells remain intact. As a result of all this, the risk of infection and inflammation of the intervention site is very rare.
Reduced brain, kidney and lung complications
When a heart-lung pump is not used, blood cells are not affected and complications such as brain damage, stroke, or kidney failure do not occur.
Due to these advantages, they are the most preferred surgical techniques today.
