Closed Heart Surgery
The method, popularly known as closed heart surgery, refers to heart surgeries performed with small incisions without splitting the chest with minimally invasive surgery. After the necessary tests, analyzes and evaluations are made, the most appropriate surgical technique is decided by the specialist physician if the patient’s condition is suitable. . In these surgeries, the heart is reached through small incisions and necessary surgical interventions are performed. These incisions are made under the armpit, under the breast, from the outer fold of the breast and consist of small incisions of 4-5 cm that allow access to the heart by passing between the ribs. However, when compared to open heart surgeries, closed heart surgeries provide a faster recovery period and higher comfort, especially after surgery. In addition, the risk of complications and infection is lower compared to open heart surgeries. The patient can easily return to his daily life without limitation of movement.
