Understanding cardiac surgery

Cardiovascular or heart surgery is a surgical procedure performed on blood vessels or the heart to treat various conditions. These surgeries are performed in serious situations. Testing your heart and blood as soon as possible is crucial to prevent some diseases or complications. If surgery is the only option left, there are a couple of different approaches, which depend on the state of the patient’s health. These interventions affect vessels, heart muscles, and valves. 

What causes heart disease?

There are many causes of heart disease. Some of the most common ones include:


Bad Diet: eating foods rich in fats can impact the cholesterol and triglycerides in the body. High-salt food can affect blood pressure.

High cholesterol: this increases the risks of fatty deposits building up in arteries and causing a problem.

Diabetes: high blood sugar can damage the heart and blood vessels.

Age: with age, vessels and the heart start to lose their strength and health, which can lead to diseases.

Genetics: some genetic factors can contribute to the higher risk of getting heart disease.

Sleep apnea: this can lead to high blood pressure and damage to the heart.

Chronic stress: chronic stress can lead to an unhealthy lifestyle, which leads to smoking, excessively eating, or drinking which can cause heart diseases.

Drug use: certain drugs, like amphetamines and cocaine, can increase heart disease risks.


Tobacco use: Nicotine and other substances in cigarettes can damage vessels.

Obesity: extra body fat, especially in the stomach area can cause high blood pressure, cholesterol, and insulin resistance.

Excessive alcohol use: Heavy intake of alcohol can lead to high blood pressure, failure of the heart, etc.

Physical inactivity: Regular activity can lower the risks of heart disease obesity and blood pressure which cause diseases.

High blood pressure: high blood pressure which lasts for a longer period can damage arteries.

Unlocking a World of Cardiac Solutions with Healing Travel

CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting)

This approach is used to treat coronary artery disease. In this case, the heart's blood vessels are narrowed or blocked, which causes a problem. Using this approach, a blood vessel from the body is used to make a bypass to improve the flow of the blood to the heart.

Heart transplantation

This approach is meant for those who have significant heart failure. It includes replacement with a healthy donor heart.

Congenital Heart defect repair

This approach is used to correct and heal heart defects that have been present since the birth of a person. It varies depending on the defect that the person has.

Pacemaker and ICD insertion

This approach addresses irregular heart rhythm and it includes implanting a small device called a pacemaker or ICD which stabilizes the heart rhythm.

Aneurysm repair

This approach is meant for circumstances in which blood vessel walls are enlarged or weakened. This can happen with major blood vessels. The procedure involves replacing the weakened part of the Wessel with a graft. Another approach is less invasive. It includes using stents to reinforce and strengthen vessel walls.

Valve replacement and repair

This approach is used to treat damaged heart valves. The procedure includes removing a failing valve and replacing it with a new one, biological or mechanical valve. In some cases, repairing a valve that already exists is an option.

Heart valve repair

This approach helps with conditions such as narrowing or leakage of the valves. It is similar to valve replacements which we talked about above.

Minimally invasive cardiac surgery

This approach is done with small incisions, which leave less trauma, scars, and damage and offer a quicker recovery. These include minimally invasive artery bypass grafting, valve repairs, and other procedures.
