Open Heart Surgery – This is one of the most common heart surgeries in India. It is a highly complex surgery where the chest is ribbed open by the surgeon. The blocked arteries are then bypassed and heart valves are also replaced or repaired as needed. This surgery also includes heart transplants and atrial fibrillation transplant.

The heart is donated after the donor is no more, within the stipulated time.

By Pass Surgery – Scientifically called Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), this is a surgery that has been there for over decades and is the most common form of heart surgeries in India. Performed on people with CHD or coronory heart disease, this surgery is done when plaque builds up inside the arteries thus blocking the blood flow. A healthy artery from some other part of your body like leg is taken and is grafted by the surgeon into the existing blocked artery in a way that it by passes the blocked one. Thus, the blood flow is regulated through another route. Bypass involves removal of single or multiple blockages as the need be.
