Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS)

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS)

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery is performed through small incisions on the chest. The entry incision is around 3 – 4 finger breadths on either side of the chest, avoiding any bone cutting, rather than the traditional 6-8 inch cut through the centre of the chest cutting open the chest bone (sternum).

Conditions for which MICS can be performed:

MICS consists of various techniques to treat almost all cardiac surgical procedures. For example:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Aortic/ Mitral valve disease
  • Complex procedures like Bentall’s procedure for arotic root aneurysms, Aortic arch surgeries
  • Congenital heart disease including hole in the heart (ASD, VSD) or any complex structural disease

The heart team approach

A group of cardiologists and surgeons mutually discuss the best possible treatment options for the patient. The treatment options are then discussed with the patient and the family for formulation of final plan of care.

Advantages over the conventional procedure

  • Lower chest wall injury, no bone cutting
  • Less chances of infection
  • Insignificant scars
  • Significantly less blood loss and minimal/No blood transfusions
  • Shorter ICU and hospital stay (4-5 days, instead of 7-8 days in conventional procedure)
  • Quicker recovery and return to active life
  • Better outcome in the remote possibility of re-operation

The Apollo Edge

  • The first group of hospitals to start and pioneer the MICS techniques and systems
  • Full time – in house team of experts to deal with all sorts of cardiac conditions
  • Ability to tackle all emergencies, complexities and complications in case they arise
