In the past decades MACS (Minimal Access Cardiac Surgery) has received great acknowledgement in the clinical arena. The constant innovation to reduce surgical trauma and faster recovery period of recovery have led to the development of MACS. The development of advanced techniques and high-end instruments has helped to minimize the discomfort and impairment of the daily activity of the patient.
BLK Super Speciality Hospital, Delhi has started a MACS department which has expert surgeons in this field. This technology focuses on minimizing the invasiveness of surgical procedures.
Conventional operations consisted of a standard median sternotomy for thoracic access to put the patient on a heart lungs machine but minimally invasive operations are performed differently.
Shift in Technology
Due to subsequent advancement, innovation and surgical refinement in this arena, Minimal Invasive Cardiac Surgery stands much more superior in its operative outcomes as compared to the conventional method.
What is MACS?
Cardiac surgery is performed through small incisions either on the right or left chest. This helps to avoid the midline sternotomy and morbidity associated with it. The surgeons perform the same complex heart surgery through small incisions at the right side of the patient’s chest, as an alternative to open heart surgery. Surgeons operate between the ribs and don’t open the breastbone.
Benefits of MACS
The patient confront with less pain and less risk of infection
Reduce ICU and hospital stay (3-5 days whereas in conventional surgical method its 7-10 days)
Lessen the blood loss and blood transfusion
Improve post-operative pulmonary function
Swift recovery & better cosmetic results that ultimately improve quality of life
Safety Measures of MICS
Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery is safe and effective procedure. This can be applicable for performing a wide range of complex heart surgeries like:
Atrial Septal Defects
Mitral Valve Repair and Replacement
Aortic Valve Replacement
Coronary Artery Bypass
