The Medical arena is always improving with time. This feat of improvement is always achieved by the team at Wockhardt Hospital, Nashik. This time the improvement is for Heart Surgery.
Heart surgery was always feared for its long incisions. High risk of infection, long hospital stay, and large blood transfusions. With MICAS (Minimal Invasive Coronary Artery Surgery) these concerns are taken care of. Recently it was performed at Wockhardt hospitals Nashik under the able guidance of Dr. Rahul Kaiche, a cardiac surgeon at Wockhardt Hospitals, Nashik. Dr. Rahul Kaiche said,” MICAS is performed through very small incisions”. He added that the incision used for MICAS is about 3 to 4 inches instead of the 6 to 8-inch incision required for traditional surgery. The benefits of MICAS includes:
- Small incision
- Division of the Chest Bone is not needed
- Shorter Hospital stay After surgery
- Lo risk of infection.
- Low risk of bleeding and blood transfusion
- Shorter recovery time(1-4 week)as compared to a 6-8 week in a traditional method.
- Faster return to normal activities/work 3-5 days as compared to 7-10 Days in the Traditional method.
Dr. Rahul Kaiche added that nowadays minimally invasive surgery can be performed for most cardiac surgical procedures like CABG, valve replacement, hole in the heart. Dr. Rahul Kaiche along with his team of experts has successfully done two CABG cases requiring single graft through left thoracotomy(cut on left side of chest) instead of central chest bone cutting incision Shyam Lata(Name Changed) First case was 55yr old lady who had block stent in one vessel and another patient Ram Kumar(Name Changed) is 51yr old male who had 100% blocked artery.
