Cardiovascular surgery

Cardiovascular surgery, also known as cardiothoracic surgery, is a specialized medical field that focuses on surgical procedures involving the heart, blood vessels, and lungs. Cardiovascular surgeons are highly skilled surgeons who perform a wide range of procedures to treat various conditions related to the cardiovascular system.

Cardiovascular surgery encompasses surgical interventions for conditions such as coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, congenital heart defects, aortic aneurysms, and heart failure. Some common procedures performed by cardiovascular surgeons include coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), valve repair or replacement, heart transplantation, aortic aneurysm repair, ventricular assist device (VAD) implantation, and heart defect repair in pediatric patients.

These surgeons work in close collaboration with other healthcare professionals, including cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and critical care specialists, to provide comprehensive care to patients with complex cardiovascular conditions. Their expertise and advanced surgical techniques contribute to the management and treatment of a wide range of cardiovascular diseases.
