Patients with three-vessel coronary artery disease have been found to have better outcomes with coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) than with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), but studies in which PCI is guided by measurement of fractional flow reserve (FFR) have been lacking.
Off pump (beating heart) CABG is safe and cost effective. Dr Babar CHAUDHRI is an expert in this form of surgery.
Syntax study confirms the safety and superiority of CABG over stenting in triple vessel coronary artery disease and left main stem disease.
Syntax study confirms the safety and superiority of CABG over stenting in triple vessel coronary artery disease and left main stem disease in moderate to severe disease burden. It is the treatment of choice in diabetic patients.
Coronary artery surgery is safe and cost effective.
Factors that aid decision making when choosing whether to use the heart-lung bypass machine for coronary revascularization (CABG/ OPCAB).
Coronary bypass surgery (CABG) is the treatment of choice for diabetic patients with multi vessel coronary artery disease.
Coronary artery surgery can be performed via small incisions (Minimal Access CABG) and the da Vinci robot may be used. The advantages are excellent visualisation and more rapid recovery (Robotic CABG).
Need for enforceable guidelines and multi-disciplinary teams for heart care.
