New advances in cardiac surgery are being made every day. And, you can find them being used by the cardiothoracic surgeons at ProMedica Toledo Hospital and ProMedica St. Luke’s Hospital. These highly skilled surgeons offer a wide range of innovative, traditional and minimally invasive surgical therapies including:
Aortic aneurysm surgery
An abdominal aortic aneurysm is when the large blood vessel that supplies blood to the abdomen, pelvis, and legs becomes abnormally large or balloons outward.
Cardiac Valve Surgery
Minimally invasive and traditional valve surgery
Heart valve surgery is used to repair or replace diseased heart valves.
Blood that flows between different chambers of your heart must flow through a heart valve. Blood that flows out of your heart into large arteries must flow through a heart valve.
These valves open up enough so that blood can flow through. They then close, keeping blood from flowing backward.
- Mitral valve repair and replacement
- Aortic valve repair and replacement including TAVR (Open, Minimally-Invasive Surgery, TAVR)
- Tricuspid valve repair and replacement
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG)
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a narrowing of the small blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart. CHD is also called coronary artery disease.
- Off-pump (beating heart) coronary bypass
- Traditional coronary artery bypass surgery
