Overview
The traditional open-heart surgery involves vertical incision along patient;s sternum to split the breastbone and gains access to the heart. This results in large volume of blood loss and a 30 cm long incision scar. Also, patients are required a longer period of recovery. Since 2004, our team has actively developed Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS), which avoids a large incision of the sternum and leads to about 3-7 cm small opening. Due to notably less postoperative pain and lower risk of infections, these advanced techniques has been very beneficial to our patients with cardiovascular diseases.
Features
Minimally invasive approach can make the incision not only smaller but also on the side of the chest. When patients wear low-neck or scoop-neck shirts, the scar will not be appeared . Female patients are also able to wear bikini which covers the wound on the side or lower edge of breast.



According to past experience, smaller incision and sternum remaining intact lead to lower risk of post-operative sternal osteomyelitis, less pain and fewer restriction to pulmonary function. Besides improvement in incision size and complications management, patients experience shorter length of hospital and ICU stay, faster recovery, reduced ventilation time and lower mortality rate. Meanwhile, the relative medical expenses and loading of patient's care are declined.




Notification
1. Wound pain
During the wound healing process, patients may experience itching at the wound area. Taking recommended dose of painkillers or holding down the wound during coughing are helpful in relieving the pain.
 
2. Cardiac rehabilitation
Early ambulation following a heart surgery is very important in cardiac rehabilitation. It not only improves cardiopulmonary function, but also prevents complications such as pneumonia, pressure ulcers and deep vein thrombosis due to physical inactivity or long-term bed rest.
 
3. When can I go back to work after heart surgery?
If you are non-labor worker, you may return to work one month after the surgery and also when you do not feel discomfort after climbing stairs.
If you are labor-worker, you should gradually increase your activity over the next 6-8 weeks after heart surgery. You should stop working and have some rest when you experience dizziness or fatigue.
