Cardiac Surgeons Introduce The EVH In The UAE

UAEAt the Sheikh Khalifa Medical City () in , cardiac surgeons have begun to perform the minimally invasive “endoscopic vein harvesting” procedure for heart by-pass surgeries instead of traditional open surgeries. Surgeons explained that the process “Heart by-pass or coronary artery by-pass grafting” modifies the blood flow around blocked arteries in the heart so that blood and oxygen flow more easily.

This process can be performed through extracting a vein or artery from another part of the body, like the leg, then sewing the vessel to the coronary artery to bypass the clogged artery and restore the blood flow. Dr Norbert Augustine, Chairman of the Cardiac Sciences Institute at SKMC, said: “Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting has tremendous potential benefits for patients, such as reducing leg wound complications and offering a much better cosmetic result”.

Dr Augustine said “We are pleased to be able to offer this less-invasive option to our patients at SKMC using the expertise of our team. We have already performed 30 cases using this new method with excellent results. Using this method, the vessel can be removed through one to three very small incisions”. He added “the benefits of endoscopic vein harvesting () are reduced pain, reduced blood loss, reduced risk of infection, shorter hospital stay, faster recovery, faster return to work and excellent cosmetic results”.
