What is Minimally Invasive- Hybrid Coronary Revascularization?


Minimally invasive Hybrid Coronary Revascularisation Is a combination of Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Bypass Graft surgery (MICS-CABG) and Anglopasty (stent insertion. This Innovative procedure Is used to treat patients with multi-vessel coronary artery disease, who may otherwise require conventional open CABG. This Minimally Invasive approach avoids spiting of the central chest bone sternotomy) and Jong cuts in the legs. Minimally Invasive - Hybrid Coronary Revascularisation (MINCR) surgery Is now Increasingly performed in the western world.

Dr. M M Yusuf and his team are the only units in India routinely performing this surgery, through a unique 2 stage approach. The consistent support between surgeons and cardiologists that this procedure demands has been pivotal to the success achieved by Dr. M M Yusuf and his fellow cardiologists.



The 2-Stage Approach:


During this procedure, MICS-CABG Is performed first, followed by Angioplasty (stent insertion), after 24-48 hours.




Minimatty invasive approach, combining the best of both long-term outcomes from surgery and angioplasty.

Patients with mutt-vessel disease, poor heart function, additional medical problems and the elderly can avoid conventional open CABG and complications thereof

The use of arterial conduits increases the durability of the bypass grafts Minimal trauma and pain.

Minimal blood loss and related complications.

Minimal risk of wound infection.

Short hospital stays 3-4 days on average.

Quick recovery to normal activity 2-3 weeks on average.
