CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft)

CABG surgeries are open-heart surgeries that are most commonly performed surgical procedures to improve the blood flow to the heart. This surgery is usually recommended for patients with blockages of heart arteries. In this surgical procedure, a healthy artery or vein from the body is grafted to the blocked coronary artery which bypasses the blocked portion of the coronary artery to create a new path for blood oxygen-rich blood to flow to the heart muscle. Usually, the bypass graft for CABG can be a vein from the leg or an inner chest wall artery. 
Other treatment option for coronary disease is Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), also known as Coronary angioplasty.

Coronary angioplasty is a non-surgical procedure in which a balloon is used to widen blocked or narrowed arteries. At Sakra, we have a team of dedicated and highly-experienced cardiac surgeons in Bangalore.

Heart valve surgery is a specialized surgery that is performed to treat heart valve disease that requires the repair or replace a valve in the heart that is not functioning properly. It is also called valvular heart disease.   
Normally, heart valves control the flow of blood by making it move in unidirectional through the heart and the body. If the valve is not functioning properly, then the flow of blood and the network of blood vessels that carry oxygen throughout the body are affected.

Heart valve surgery is a major open-heart surgery that is performed through the breastbone into the chest. At Sakra, we have a highly-experienced cardiac and vascular surgeon in Bangalore to treat heart valve disease with advanced technology. 
Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery

OZAKI is a heart procedure in which the heart tissue of the patient is used to reconstruct a damaged aortic valve, instead of replacing it completely with a prosthetic implant. 

OZAKI is a minimally invasive technique that is a tailored replacement of each individual valvular leaflet with treated autologous pericardial patches which looks similar to the normal aortic valve. 

The function of the aortic valve is to regulate the flow of blood from the heart to the rest of the body. When the aortic valve is not functioning properly due to various conditions like aortic stenosis, aortic valve regurgitation, and a congenital heart defect, then surgery is usually required to replace it and restore the normal function of the aortic valve.
