Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery

Cardiovascular surgery is surgery on the heart or great vessels performed by cardiac surgeons. Frequently, it is done to treat complications of ischemic heart disease, correct congenital heart disease, or treat valvular heart disease from various causes including endocarditis, rheumatic heart disease and atherosclerosis. It also includes heart transplantation. Cardiothoracic surgery is the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of organs inside the thorax generally treatment of conditions of the heart and lungs Cardiac surgery and thoracic surgery are separate surgical specialties. Open heart surgery is a surgery in which the patient's heart is opened and surgery is performed on the internal structures of the heart. Minimally invasive surgery is where a machine is used to perform surgery while being controlled by the heart surgeon. The main advantage to this is the size of the incision made in the patient. Instead of an incision being at least big enough for the surgeon to put his hands inside, it does not have to be bigger than 3 small holes for the robot's much smaller "hands" to get through. Paediatric cardiovascular surgery is surgery of the heart of children.

A cardiothoracic surgeon is a medical doctor who specializes in surgical procedures of the heart, lungs, oesophagus, and other organs in the chest. This includes surgeons who can be called cardiac surgeons, cardiovascular surgeons, general thoracic surgeons, and congenital heart surgeons. Cardiothoracic surgeons operate on diseases that occur in the organs inside the chest and in the bony structures and tissues that form the chest cavity. Coronary artery disease is one of the most common diseases treated by cardiothoracic surgeons. General thoracic surgeons treat primarily lung cancer and diseases of the oesophagus and chest wall. Congenital heart surgeons care for babies and children with holes between the heart chambers or abnormal connections within the heart. The main areas of cardiothoracic surgery are: adult cardiac surgery, general thoracic surgery, congenital cardiac surgery, heart and lung transplant surgery.
