Open heart surgery uday

  1. 1. Introduction Open heart surgery is any surgery where the chest is opened and surgery is done on the heart muscle, valves, arteries, or other parts of the heart (such as the aorta). The term "open" means that the chest is "cut" open. The definition of open heart surgery has become confusing because new procedures are being done on the heart through smaller cuts. Some new procedures are being done with the heart still beating(off pump).
  2. 2. Conditions commonly treated with open heart surgery include • Heart valve surgery • Atrial septal defect • Cardiac transplant • Coarctation of the aorta • Congenital heart defect corrective surgery • Heart bypass surgery (coronary artery bypass graft - CABG) • Mitral valve surgery • Tetralogy of Fallot • Ventricular septal defect (VSD)
  3. 3. indication • Congenital defect repair, • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), commonly called heart bypass surgery. CABG provides a new route around diseased coronary arteries with healthy vessels taken from other places of body. This is the most common heart surgery in adults. • Heart transplant to remove a severely damaged heart and replace it with a donor heart • Heart valve repair or replacement when a heart valve does not function properly. Heart valves control the flow of blood into and out of the heart.
  4. 4. Conti… • Implantation of medical devices to help control heartbeat or support proper heart function • Transmyocardial laser revascularization when coronary artery bypass is not an option. • The surgeon uses lasers to make channels directly in the heart muscle to supply it with blood. • Maze procedure, which is the creation of scar tissue to block irregular electrical signals through the heart. • The Maze procedure is used to treat atrial fibrillation or an irregular heartbeat that is not amenable to medications or less invasive methods.
  5. 5. Types of open heart surgery • The types of open heart surgery procedures include: • On-pump surgery uses a heart-lung machine (cardiopulmonary bypass). This machine temporarily takes over the heart’s job of pumping oxygen-rich blood to the organs and tissues. This is the traditional type of open heart surgery. It allows surgeon to operate on a heart that is not beating and has no blood travelling through it. • Beating heart or off-pump surgery does not use a heart-lung machine and surgeon operates on an actively beating heart. However, surgeon will slow heart rate with medication or a device. This type of open heart surgery is limited to a few specific procedures. • Robot-assisted surgery allows surgeon to use a special computer to control robotic arms that perform the surgery. The surgeon sees a three-dimensional view of the surgery on the computer. This type of surgery is very precise. However, it also is limited to a few specific procedures.
  6. 6. Pre-operative assessment • Before cardiac surgery, the patient’s history should be taken n carefully examination for factors that might predispose to complications, such as the following: Cardiac Risk Index Criteria : • History of myocardial infarction • History of current angina • Use of sublingual nitroglycerine • Positive exercise test results Q waves on electrocardiogram
  7. 7. Conti… • Patients who have undergone percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty or coronary artery bypass graft surgery and who have chest pain presumed to be of ischemic origin • History of transient ischemic attack • History of cerebrovascular accident • Diabetes mellitus requiring insulin therapy • Chronic renal insufficiency, defined as a baseline creatinine level of at least 2.0 mg/dL .
  8. 8. Routine preoperative investigations • Full blood count (abnormalities corrected) • Clotting screen • Creatinine and electrolytes • Liver function tests • Screening for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus • Chest radiography • ECG • Echocardiography or ventriculography (to assess LV function) • Coronary angiography (to define the extent and location of CAD)
  9. 9. Monitoring In addition to the standard anesthetic monitoring (ECG, pulse oximetry, nasopharyngeal temperature, urine output, gas analysis), Specific monitoring requirements for cardiac surgery include the following: • Invasive blood pressure • Central venous access • Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE)
  10. 10. Arterial line • An arterial line is a fine plastic tube, called a cannula, which is inserted into the patients’ artery. The cannula is attached to a transducer and infusion line (drip). There are two main purposes of an arterial line. • Firstly when patients are very sick an arterial line is inserted to provide constant monitoring and recording of the patient’s blood pressure. • Secondly some patients require frequent blood tests and the arterial line provides easy access to a patient’s blood. • Thus reducing the number of times a blood vessel will be accessed with a needle and reducing patient pain. • Arterial blood gases (ABG) are important blood tests that assist in monitoring the patient’s oxygen status. An ABG can only be taken from an artery.
  11. 11. Pulmonary Artery Catheter • Invented in 1970 by Swan, Ganz and colleagues for hemodynamic assessment of patients with acute myocardial infarction. • Standard PAC is 7.0, 7.5 or 8.0 French in circumference and 110 cm in length divided in 10 cm intervals
  12. 12. Pulmonary Artery Catheter • PAC has 4-5 lumens: – Temperature thermistor located proximal to balloon to measure pulmonary artery blood temperature – Proximal port located 30 cm from tip for CVP monitoring, fluid and drug administration – Distal port at catheter tip for PAP monitoring – +/- Variable infusion port (VIP) for fluid and drug administration – Balloon at catheter tip
  13. 13. Indications • Diagnostic assessment of shock states (cardiogenic, distributive, hypovolemic) and assessment of response to treatment Using cardiac output, stroke volume, systemic vascular resistance • LV preload and LV performance, pulmonary vasomotor tone, intravascular volume status, especially in the context of acute lung injury • Right heart pressures Using right atrial pressure, pulmonary artery pressure • Intracardiac shunt • Assess volume status • Assess RV or LV failure • Assess Pulmonary Hypertension • Assess Valvular disease • Cardiac Surgery • Sites • IJV, subclavian, femoral also possible

  15. 15. Hemodynamic Parameters
  16. 16. Premedication • The aims of premedication are to minimize myocardial oxygen demands by reducing heart rate and systemic arterial pressure and to improve myocardial blood flow with vasodilators. Drugs that should be continued up to the time of surgery are as follows: • Beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and nitrates • Agents given are as follows: • Temazepam immediately preoperatively • Midazolam, a small IV dose in the operating room before arterial line insertion • Each patient should be cross-matched with blood , fresh frozen plasma, and platelets . Tranexamic acid (bolus 1 g before surgical incision followed by an infusion of 400 mg/hr during surgery) may be considered to reduce postoperative mediastinal bleeding and blood product (ie, red blood cell and fresh frozen plasma) use
  17. 17. induction • Monitoring equipment is attached and peripheral venous access achieved but before the arterial line is inserted, the midazolam dose is administered. Before placement of the arterial line, it should be ensured that a radial artery graft will not be used for CABG. • Cardiac surgery makes use 2 forms of neuraxial blockade: • Intrathecal opioid infusion • Thoracic epidural anesthesia (generally a low-dose local anesthetic/opioid infusion) • During induction and tracheal intubation, it is important to maintain a steady heart rate and blood pressure. • Patients should be preoxygenated. • Induction of anesthesia is accomplished by using high doses of opioid (usually fentanyl 20-40 microgrm/kg or remifentanil) to minimize the dose of propofol, etomidate0.3mg/kg, or thiopental 2.5-4.5mg/kg and thereby maximize cardiovascular stability. • Although etomidate usually minimal myocardial depression then propofol and thiopental.
  18. 18. Conti… A number of agents may be used for muscle relaxation Intubating dose of muscle relaxant: • Succinylcholine 1mg/kg duration 5-10min. • Pancuronium 0.08-0.12mg/kg duration 60-120min. • Vecuronium 0.15-0.2mg/kg/ duration 45-90min. • Rocuronium 0.6-1mg/kg duration 35-75min. • Atracurium0.5-0.6mg/kg duration 30-45min
  19. 19. Conti… • However, they each have their own associated complications, as follows: Succinylcholine is depolariser and lead to cardiac arrhythmias and bradycardia. • Pancuronium Increases myocardial oxygen demand by increasing HR, CO and BP. Vagal effect produse by anaesthesia and surgical stimuli that concealed by vagolytic effect of Pancuronium • Vecuronium may cause bradycardia in association with opioids • Rocuronium can cause tachycardia, and also decrease PAP. • Atracurium (which is not considered suitable for operations of long duration) can cause hypotension secondary to histamine release.
  20. 20. conti… • Votatile anaesthetic agent • Halothane decrease BP due to decrease SV and CO. • It sensitises the myocradium to catecholamines n lead to development of arrhythmias. • Isoflurane • It causes dose dependent decrease in BP, by decreasing SVR • It dose not destablise the heart rhythm even in presence of Adr. • Enflurane • It also sensitises the myocradium to catecholamines • It produse coronary vasodilatation lead to decrease coronary perfusion pressure. • It produse fluoride ions which may toxic to kidney. • Sevoflurane • Most common use in cardiac surgery due to favorable haemodynamic effect and cardioprotective property. • It decrease SVR arterial BP and CO in dose dependent fashion with tendency to lower HR.
  21. 21. Conti… • The trachea should be intubated orally because nasal intubation may cause significant bleeding once heparin is administered. • A double-lumen endotracheal tube is required if CABG is being performed via a left thoracotomy.• • Central venous access should be obtained. It is not uncommon for the patient to become hypotensive. To ensure that there is sufficient diastolic pressure to maintain coronary perfusion, hypotension should be treated with IV fluids or with an alpha agonist if LV function is depressed. • Typically, maintenance of anesthesia is accomplished with an opioid infusion (fentanyl, alfentanil, sufentanil, or remifentanil) combined with either a propofol infusion (total IV anesthesia) or a volatile agent. Volatile agents are generally carried in an air-oxygen mixture because the use of nitrous oxide as a carrier is controversial. Isoflurane may have a myocardial protective effect and therefore is especially useful in off-pump surgery.
  22. 22. Cardiopulmonary bypass machines • The CPB machine has five basic components: Venous reservoir, an oxygenator, a heat exchanger, a main pump, and an arterial filter. • Venous reservoir • The reservoir of the CPB machine receives blood from the patient via one or two venous cannulas in the right atrium or the superior and inferior vena cava. • Blood flows to the reservoir by gravity drainage. Because venous pressure is normally low, • Oxygenator • Blood is drained by gravity from the bottom of the venous reservoir into the oxygenator, which contains a blood–gas interface that allows blood to equilibrate with the gas mixture (primarily oxygen).
  23. 23. Conti… • Heat Exchanger • Blood from the oxygenator enters the heat exchanger. • The blood is then either cooled or warmed, depending on the temperature of the water flowing through the exchanger (4–42°C); heat transfer occurs by conduction. • Main Pump • Modern CPB machines use either an electrically driven double-arm roller (positive displacement) or a centrifugal pump to propel blood through the CPB circuit. • Arterial Filter • Particulate matter (eg, thrombi, fat globules, calcium, tissue debris) enters the CPB circuit with alarming regularity. • Although filters are often used at other locations, a final, in-line, arterial filter is mandatory to prevent systemic embolism. . • The filter is also designed to trap air,

Reduction of metabolic activity by hypothermia. Therapeutic arrest of contractile appearatus and all electrical activity of myocite by administating cardioplagic solution(eg. Depolarizing of membrane potential by high potassium blood cardioplagia Maintenance of normal cellular integrity and function during CPB depends on reducing energy expenditure and preserving the availability of high-energy phosphate. This is accomplished by systemic and topical cardiac hypothermia(Ice flushing, about 4℃) and the use of potassium cardiplegia Avoid ventricular fibrillation and distention(LV venting)

  36. 36. Morbidity Associated With open heart Surgery Neurological Events • Neurological impairment after open heart surgery may be attributable to hypoxia, emboli, hemorrhage, and/or metabolic abnormalities. • Postoperative neurological deficits have been divided into 2 types: • Type 1, associated with major, focal neurological deficits, stupor, or coma; • Type 2, in which deterioration in intellectual function is evident. Mediastinitis • Deep sternal wound infection occurs in 1% to 4% of patients after bypass surgery and carries a mortality of ≈25%. • Predictors of this complication include obesity, reoperation, use of both internal mammary arteries at surgery, duration and complexity of surgery, and diabetes.
  37. 37. Conti… Renal Dysfunction • Postoperative renal dysfunction occurs in as many as 8% of patients. • Among patients who develop postoperative renal dysfunction (defined as a postoperative serum creatinine level >2.0 mg/dL ), 18% require dialysis. • Overall mortality among patients who develop postoperative renal dysfunction is 19% and approaches two thirds among patients requiring dialysis. • Predictors of renal dysfunction include advanced age, a history of moderate or severe congestive heart failure, prior bypass surgery, type 1 diabetes, and prior renal disease. • Patients with advanced preoperative renal dysfunction who undergo CABG surgery have an extraordinarily high rate of requiring postoperative dialysis. • Among patients with a preoperative creatinine level >2.5 mg/dL, 40% to 50% require hemodialysis.
  38. 38. Conti… Long-Term Outcomes • Predictors of poor long-term survival after bypass surgery include advanced age, poor LVEF, diabetes, number of diseased vessels, and female sex. • In some studies, additional predictors include angina , hypertension, prior MI, renal dysfunction, and clinical congestive heart failure. • Predictors of the recurrence of angina, late MI, or any cardiac event also include obesity , as well as those factors identified above. Of these events, the return of angina is the most common and is primarily related to late vein-graft atherosclerosis and occlusion.
  39. 39. Venous thromboembolism • Venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), are quite common causes of morbidity and mortality that are largely preventable in the postoperative patient. • Surgical patients in particular have significantly increased risks for VTE due to advanced age, multiple medical comorbidities, and prolonged procedure times, in addition to the hypercoagulable state of surgery and immobility. Thus, clinicians must consider VTE risk and risk-reduction strategies in all patients undergoing surgery. • Patient-related risk factors for VTE include age older than 40 years, malignancy, immobilization, varicose veins, severe cardiopulmonary disease (prior MI, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), prior stroke, paralysis or spinal cord injury, prior VTE events, hyperviscosity syndromes (polycythemia vera or malignancy related), and major vascular injury.
  40. 40. Conti… • prevent VTE events are categorized into nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic means. • Nonpharmacologic methods include: • early ambulation, • graduated compression stockings, • intermittent pneumatic compression devices. • Pharmacologic methods routinely evaluated include: • aspirin, • low-dose unfractionated heparin (LDUH) • low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) • warfarin, and • factor Xa inhibitors such as fondaparinux.
