The patient was classified as ‘very high risk’ requiring immediate surgery. However, Surgeons elsewhere refrained from undertaking this complex surgery since they were confronted with the dilemma of whether aneurysm correction should precede the bypasses or vice versa.
The MIOT Cardiac Team however decided that the patient’s survival depended on the performance of both the procedures simultaneously. After exhaustive groundwork, extensive research and consultation with experts, the MIOT Team performed the eight-hour long high risk, first of its kind surgical procedure. First the five bypass procedures were performed without stopping the heart. The aneurysm was then opened and the whole of the arch and descending aorta was replaced with a tube graft within the stipulated time. After the complex but successful surgery, the patient was able to move around normally and he says with gratitude :
Thanks to MIOT Hospitals and its team of competent doctors for their world class treatment, I feel like I have just been born.
