Advantages of Coronary Bypass Surgery for a Working Heart
Bypass surgery on a functioning heartIt reduces the need for blood transfusion and reduces the risk of disease transmission through blood transfusion. Reducing the possibility of needing blood transfusion also minimizes the risk of reactions in the patient's body.
In patients with severely impaired heart functions, the biggest risks after surgery are heart failure and complications related to failure.
Other advantages of bypass surgery for a functioning heart for the patient are as follows:
- Since patients' blood loss is low, postoperative recovery is faster.
- The risk of organ failure is lower. Functional disorders in organs such as lung failure or kidney failure are less common in bypass surgery on a working heart.
- The likelihood of experiencing neuropsychiatric problems after surgery is also lower in bypass surgery on a functioning heart.
Bypass surgery on a working heart is more effective than surgery where the heart is stopped. it will take short time and the likelihood of patients staying in intensive care decreases.
In functioning heart bypass surgery performed with the minimally invasive surgical technique, there is less bleeding and therefore less blood requirement during the surgery, and patients can be discharged earlier after the surgery and can return to their daily lives.
