Heart and blood vessel surgeries

For the heart to work well, blood must flow in only one direction. The heart's valves make this possible. Healthy valves open and close in a precise way as the heart pumps blood. Each valve has a set of flaps called leaflets. Heart surgery is used to fix leaflets that don't open as wide as they should. This can happen if they become thick or stiff or fuse together. As a result, not enough blood flows through the valve. Hybrid cardiac surgery combines cardiac surgery with an interventional (catheter-based) approach. Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is the most common type of heart surgery.
