  5. 5. Purpose of surgery * Revascularization , e.g. CABG . * Correct congenital defects , e.g. ASD closure . * Treat valvular disorders , e.g. MVR . * Heart transplantation . * Treatment of cardiac arrhythmias , e.g. Cox maze procedure . * Removal of cardiac tumors , e.g. Robotically assisted surgery .
  6. 6. W is at risk ? ho * Elderly . * Diabetic patients . * Patients with COPD . * Patients with ESRD . * Reoperative patients . * Concomitant PVD . * Poor LV function .
  7. 7. Surgical Approaches 1- Open – Heart Surgery : thoracic cavity is opened to expose the heart and the blood is recirculated and oxygenated through CPB ( heart – lung machine ) e.g. CABG . 2- Off – Pump Heart Surgery : this approach is like traditional open heart surgery . However , the heart isn’t stopped , and a CPM isn’t used . 3- Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery : surgeon makes small incisions in the side of the chest between ribs ,
  8. 8. Types & Techniques I – CABG : * CAD has been treated by myocardial revascularization since 1960s , and the most common CABG techniques have been performed for more than 35 years . * CABG is a surgery that increases blood flow to the heart by creating a detour and re-routing the blood flow around the blocked portion of the artery .
  9. 9. Types & Techniques I – CABG : * The major indications for CABG are alleviation of angina that cannot be controlled with medication or PCI , treatment of left main coronary artery stenosis or multivessel CAD , prevention and treatment of MI or heart failure , treatment for complications from unsuccessful PCI .
  10. 10. Types & Techniques I – CABG : * Performed less frequently in women . Compared with men , women referred for this surgery tend to be older and have more comorbidities . In addition , they have a higher risk of surgical complications such as MI and stroke ( Puskas , Kilgo , Kutner , et al., 2007 ) . Furthermore , women have smaller coronary arteries , which make the surgical procedure technically more difficult .
  11. 11. Types & Techniques I – CABG : * The recommendation for CABG is determined by a number of factors , including the number of diseased coronary vessels , the degree of LV dysfunction , comorbidities , severity of symptoms and any other previous treatment . Studies have shown that CABG may be the preferred treatment for high – risk patients such as those with sever three vessels CAD , ventricular dysfunction and diabetes ( Bravata , Gienger , McDonald , et la., 2007 ) . CABG to be considered if occlusion 70 % approximately especially
  12. 12. Types & Techniques I – CABG : * Traditional technique : surgeon performs a median sternotomy and connect patient to CPB machine . Next , a blood vessel from either saphenous vein or left/right internal mammary artery is grafted distal to the coronary artery lesion by passing the obstruction .
  13. 13. Types & Techniques I – CABG : * Alternative technique : Off – Pump CABG ( OPCAB ) involves a standard median sternotomy incision , but the surgery performed without CPB , β – blocker maybe used to slow the heart rate . The surgeon also used a myocardial stabilization device to hold the site still for the anastemosis of the bypass graft . Potential benefits include a decrease in the incidence of stroke and other neurological complications , renal failure .
  14. 14. Types & Techniques I – CABG : * Risks vs. Benefits : many benefits such as decrease in angina , improved life – span , and providing an effective route for blood with prevention of new plaques formation . Some complications seen after surgery are Atrial fibrillation , increased risk for stroke , and cognitive dysfunction . Some researches showed less than 2% chance of death , 5% stroke or other neurological injury , and 20-40% Atrial fibrillation .
  15. 15. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Valvuloplasty : the repair of cardiac valve , most Valvuloplasty procedures requires general anesthesia and often CPB . However , some procedures can be performed in the cardiac catheterization lab . The type of Valvuloplasty depends on the cause and the type of valve dysfunction .
  16. 16. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Types of Valvuloplasty 1- Commissurotomy : each valve has leaflets , site where leaflets meet is called commissure , so Commissurotomy is the procedure performed to separate the fused leaflets . There is two types open and closed ( ballon Valvuloplasty ) .
  17. 17. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Types of Valvuloplasty 1- Commissurotomy : a – Clo s e d : do not require CPB , valve not directly visualized , performed in the OR with the patient under GA , midsternal incision is made , a small hole is cut into the heart , and the surgeon's finger or dilator is used to open the commissure .
  18. 18. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Types of Valvuloplasty 1- Commissurotomy : a – Clo s e d : percutanous balloon Valvuloplasty is the technique most commonly performed in US . Balloon Valvuloplasty is beneficial for mitral stenosis in young patients , for aortic valve stenosis in elderly patients , and for patients with complex medical conditions that place them at high risk for post-op complications .
  19. 19. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Types of Valvuloplasty 1- Commissurotomy : b – O p e n : are performed with direct visualization of the valve , the patient is under GA , CPB initiated , a midsternal or left thoracic incision is made , the valve is exposed and the surgeon uses a scalpel , finger , balloon , or dilator to open commissures
  20. 20. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Types of Valvuloplasty 2- Annuloplasty : is the repair of the valve annulus ( ie, junction of the valve leaflets and the muscular heart wall ) . GA and CPB are required . The procedure narrows the diameter of the valve’s orifice and is useful for the treatment of valvular regurgitation .
  21. 21. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Types of Valvuloplasty 2- Annuloplasty : there are two techniques . The first one uses an annuloplasty ring , which may be preshaped ( rigid / semirigid ) or flexible . The leaflets of the valves are sutured to a ring , creating an annulus of the desired size . When the ring is in place , the tension created by the moving blood and contracting heart is born by the ring rather than by the
  22. 22. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Types of Valvuloplasty 2- Annuloplasty : the second technique involves tacking the valve leaflets to the atrium with sutures or tacking tucks to tighten the annulus .
  23. 23. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Types of Valvuloplasty 3- Leaflet Repair : valve leaflets damage may result from stretching , shortening , or tearing . The elongated tissue may folded over onto self and sutured . A wedge of tissue may be cut from the middle of the leaflets and the gab suture closed .
  24. 24. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Types of Valvuloplasty 4- Chordoplasty : is the repair of Chordae tendineae . Mitral valve is involved with Chordoplasty , tricuspid valve seldom requires Chordoplasty .
  25. 25. Types & Techniques II – Valve repair and replacement procedures : * Valve Replacement : GA and CPB are used , procedure performed through median sternotomy . Two types of valves may be used .
