CARE Hospitals, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad today performed a ground-breaking ‘Quadruple Coronary Bypass Surgery’ on a 50-year-old male patient. The surgery, successfully performed under the leadership of Dr. Prateek Bhatnagar, Director-Department of Cardiac Surgery, along with his skilled team of doctors, using only arterial grafts. The patient, Mr. Vishwas (name changed), had previously undergone a stent placement in his left main coronary artery, but it had earlier resulted in a blockage within three months of stenting.
To give an overview of the patient’s case, Mr. Vishwas, a resident of Delhi NCR, experienced chest pain (angina) and subsequently underwent coronary angiography in Delhi, which revealed severe blockages in his left main and other coronary arteries. He received a stenting procedure in his left main coronary artery. However, within just three months of the stenting, he began to experience worsening chest pain. Realizing the high risks associated with further treatment, Mr. Vishwas extensively researched his options and made the decision to seek treatment from Dr. Prateek Bhatnagar, Director of Cardiac Surgery at CARE Hospitals Banjara Hills in Hyderabad.
Upon his admission to CARE Hospitals Mr. Vishwas underwent coronary angiography, which revealed blockages in his stents within the three-month period, posing a critical risk to his life. Dr. Bhatnagar and his skilled team successfully performed a quadruple total arterial bypass surgery on the patient by employing a technique that eliminated the need for leg cuts and an open-heart surgery. The procedure was not only successful, but the patient was also able to walk within a mere 36 hours later and now, he has even begun climbing stairs. Today, he is being discharged and is fit to fly back to Delhi.
Dr. Prateek Bhatnagar, Director, Department of Cardiac Surgery, CARE Hospitals, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad said, “The total arterial coronary bypass surgery using Bilateral Internal Mammary Artery (BIMA) provides the best long-term benefits for patients with coronary artery blockages. This surgery is less invasive and traumatic because it doesn’t require any cuts on the leg and is typically performed on the beating heart without an open-heart surgery. The risk associated with this BIMA technique in a standard coronary bypass surgery is less than 1%. Patients should not be afraid of a bypass surgery and should promptly get it done for excellent results.”
“At CARE Hospitals Banjara Hills, we possess the expertise and state-of-the-art infrastructure necessary to carry out such high-end coronary bypass surgeries. We see that patients across the country and even internationally benefit from this advanced surgical technique and hence we are committed to and will continue to provide better surgical treatment options with highest quality of care for our patients”, mentioned Mr. Nilesh Gupta, HCOO, CARE Hospitals, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.
Expressing his satisfaction with the outcome of the surgery, Mr. Vishwas stated that he is thrilled to have made the right decision to seek treatment from Dr. Prateek Bhatnagar of CARE Hospitals. He now looks forward to leading a normal life.
