DEPARTMENT OF CARDIAC SURGERY
National Heart Institute has distinguished itself as a remarkable centre for adult and paediatric surgeries. Beating heart total arterial coronary artery bypass grafting is now the mainstay of treatment of ischaemic heart disease. National Heart Institute has been a leader in the treatment of all forms of heart diseases for more than 36 years, headed by renowned and widely acclaimed cardiac surgeon Dr. O. P. Yadava. National Heart Institute surgeons cater to the entire spectrum of cardic and vascular aliments. Their repertoire includes:
- Coronary artery bypass surgery especially Total Arterial Revascularisation on beating heart
- Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery
- Valve repair and replacement surgeries
- Congenital heart surgeries for birth heart defects including holes in the heart and blue babies
- Surgeries for the failing heart
- Aortic Surgery
- Carotid Surgery
The National Heart Institute has distinguished itself as a remarkable centre for adult and paediatric cardiac surgeries. The expertise at the institute has achieved an unprecedented rate of success in high-risk cases of multiple arterial blockages. For long, the NHI has been using triple/ total arterial grafts using both the internal mammaries and radial arteries. Patients with severe three-vessel disease and patients with poor heart function have also benefited from these procedures. Patients with narrowed or leaking heart valves often develop heart failure due to the accumulation of fluid in the lungs. The valves are either repaired or replaced with mechanical or tissue valves.
National Heart Institute surgeons have engaged in a new era of cardiac surgery that promises to significantly improve treatment of the most common forms of heart diseases by introducing minimally invasive technology with a view to achieving results that are safe, precise and reproducible and with significant benefits to the patient in terms of decreased postoperative pain, recovery time, costs and overall results.
