A New Alternative to Open Heart Bypass Surgery
Date:5/5/2013

Sioux Falls, SD (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

Patients suffering from severely clogged arteries known as coronary chronic total occlusions (CTO) now have a minimally invasive option as opposed to the traditional open heart bypass surgery. Sanford Heart Hospital in Sioux Falls has introduced the BridgePoint chronic total occlusion system for treatment of CTO's, which prevent blood circulation to the heart.

The new technology offers a minimally invasive alternative to patients who are considered too risky for bypass operations and others whose surgically repaired arteries have reclogged. It also reduces risks to patients and will help dramatically improve recovery times. The BridgePoint technology is the only U.S. FDA approved system of this type currently available to treat coronary CTOs.

“With the BridgePoint chronic total occlusion system, these blockages can now be treated with angioplasty and stents through a catheter procedure, meaning we don’t need to cut through the chest to perform bypass surgery,” said Dr. Tom Stys, medical director and interventional cardiologist, Sanford Heart Hospital. “In the coming years, I believe this will become the standard of care.”

The procedure may also be performed using the Corindus CorPath200 robotic heart catheter system. This is an added benefit of surgical assistance during the procedure, where cardiologists insert a thin, flexible catheter into the artery of the wrist or groin and thread it through blood vessels to the clog. A wire is then inserted into the catheter and manipulated across and beyond the blockage.

“Sanford Heart Hospital is dedicated to bringing the best care and technology to the people of this region. We are proud to announce the availability of this new technology,” said Dr. Stys. “To do CTOs, we need an entire organization to dedicate the time and have the same mindset. We have that here at Sanford Health and at the Sanford Heart Hospital
