Emergency Cardiac Surgery

The heart is a complex organ and can cause an emergency anytime. Emergency cardiac surgeries are classified as Cardiac trauma, aortic dissection, and surgery for sudden myocardial infarction or heart attack. A cardiac trauma is defined as an injury caused to sudden force directly impacting the anterior chest, compressing the region. Motor vehicle accidents are the most common reason behind cardiac trauma. An Aortic Dissection is a life-threatening condition where a tear occurs in the main artery called the aorta. When this happens, blood oozes out of the tear, causing the inner and middle layers of the aorta to dissect. This needs immediate surgical intervention. A heart attack is the most acute condition that can happen anytime to anyone. This needs to be fixed with Coronary Angiogram and a subsequent angioplasty to clear the clogged arteries.
