Coronary Artery Bypass

Cardiac Valve Replacement/Repair

Coronary Artery Bypass

This is most common cardiac procedure used to restore or increase blood flow through the heart in patients with coronary artery disease. In most cases blocked arteries are bypassed using a chest wall artery or veins taken from the leg, thereby restoring normal blood circulation. Surgeons in ACTV have performed more than 10,000 successful coronary artery bypass surgeries.

Cardiac Valve Replacement and Repair

A dysfunctional heart valve causes the heart to pump inefficiently and can lead to an enlarged heart, rupture and heart failure. Replacement usually involves implantation of a new mechanical or biological valve. Valve repair often involves removal of calcification or the excision of defective tissue.
