Cardiovascular surgery treats diseases and conditions of the heart and the blood vessels of the entire body. Common cardiovascular procedures include coronary bypass surgery, aortic or mitral valve replacement or repair, and aneurysm repair.
Who Is This For?
Heart-related problems do not always require surgery. Sometimes they can be addressed with lifestyle changes, medications or nonsurgical procedures. For example, catheter ablation uses energy to make small scars in your heart tissue to prevent abnormal electrical signals from moving through your heart. Coronary angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure in which a stent is inserted into a narrowed or blocked coronary artery to hold it open. Nonetheless, surgery is often needed to address problems such as heart failure, plaque buildup that partially or totally blocks blood flow in a coronary artery, faulty heart valves, dilated or diseased major blood vessels (such as the aorta) and abnormal heart rhythms.
Potential Risks & Side Effects
- Reactions to anesthesia
- Damage to tissues in the heart, kidneys, liver and lungs
Recovery time depends on the type of surgery you have, but for most types of heart surgery you are likely to spend a day or more in the hospital’s intensive care unit. Then you will be moved to another part of the hospital for several days until you go home.
Today, is the anniversary of my rhinoplasty surgery. For a year, I have been looking to the mirror as a new version of beautiful Elina. I had been thinking about having surgery. So, I searched for it and reached Medicatürk. First, I called them and they told me about the process. After that, they encouraged me about the process and I decided to take the surgery. It was awesome. My face really changed and I gained a lot of confidence.
