Description:

What used to be a large scar coming down the entire front of chest with cardiac surgery is a thing of the past. Robotic heart surgery has revolutionized & changed the way cardiac procedures appear now. Even the most complex heart problems can now be fixed with precisions through small keyhole incisions on the chest wall instead of the open heart procedure which involves splitting open the breastbone in order to approach the heart. goo.gl/EkayG6 – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Closed-Chest Robot-Assisted Heart Surgery
What used to be a large scar coming down
the entire front of chest with cardiac surgery is
a thing of the past. Robotic heart surgery has
revolutionized changed the way cardiac
procedures appear now. Even the most complex
heart problems can now be fixed with precisions
through small keyhole incisions on the chest wall
instead of the open heart procedure which
involves splitting open the breastbone in order
to approach the heart.

Robotic Heart Surgery Procedure
Robotically-assisted heart surgery, also
called closed-chest heart surgery, is a type of
minimally invasive heart surgery performed by a
cardiac surgeon. The surgeon uses a
specially-designed computer console to control
surgical instruments on thin robotic arms.

Types of Procedures Performed Using Robotic Heart
Surgery
5
Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)
Coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG)
is a procedure used to treat coronary artery
disease.
6
Robotic Atrial Fibrillation Surgery
Atrial fibrillation is the most common
heart rhythm abnormality. It increases in
incidence as we age. Atrial fibrillation reduces
the efficiency of the heart making patients feel
fatigued, and causes swirling of the blood in the
fibrillating heart chambers which can lead to
blood clots and strokes.
7
Robotic Mitral Valve Surgery
Uses implants in the vaginal cavity or
high-dose X-rays to kill cancerous cells. Often
combined with surgery, radiation therapy is
useful in certain stages of cervical cancer.

8
Robotic Tricuspid Valve Surgery
This is basically a combination of Chemotherapy
Radiation Therapy. It is commonly used to treat
both early late stages of cervical cancer.
9
Robotic Atrial Septal Defect Surgery
Totally Endoscopic Robotic Atrial Septal
Defect Repair. Atrial septal defects (ASD's) are
an abnormal connection (or hole) between the
left and right atria (chambers) of the heart.
Over time, these defect, if large enough, can
cause heart failure, lung problems, and stroke.

10
Advantages of Robotic Heart Surgery
One of the most obvious advantages of robotic
heart surgery is that it does not lead to any
large scars on the chest since it is performed
through small incisions. Apart from this cosmetic
advantage, robotic heart surgery results in
decreased trauma less postoperative pain as
well. Along with this decreased need for blood
transfusions, decreased stay in intensive care
unit at the hospital as such eventually help
patients in faster recovery return to work. In
short, robotic heart surgery under an experienced
robotic heart surgeon can be a boon to heart
patients in many ways.
