Coronary surgery using an off-pump technique
Repairing of the mitral valve by minimal access
Coronary arteries Bypass grafting (CABG)
This technique is carried out routinely every year on more than 20,000 patients in the U.K. since last forty years the operating techniques have saved tons of patients lives and also improved their standard of living, by reducing the breathing problem and angina pain. One of the plus points in the OPCAB technique is that it helps in performing the entire operation without stopping the lungs and heart and at the same time cardiopulmonary bypass machine is not employed.
Usage of the cardiopulmonary bypass machine comes up with complications like mid-way memory loss or increases the chances of blood transfusion post-surgery.
In short, in some particular patients usage of OPCAB significantly decreases the death risk and stroke as compared to the method of the conventional “on-pump” technique of operation. Mr Casula is an exceptional surgeon in the U.K, who carries out this procedure routinely.
