A New Approach to Heart Bypass Surgery Provides Patients with 'One-stop Shopping'

essary in order to be more efficient, effective and safe.

“I know this is right,” Byrne said. “I would want it for me or a family member. When you know it's right for the patients, you never lose. This will offer patients, families and referring physicians not only image-guided surgery, but also the ability to provide minimally invasive cardiac surgery combined with percutaneous coronary interventions.”

David Zhao, M.D., assistant professor of Medicine and director of the cardiac catheterization lab and interventional cardiology, agrees.

“First and foremost it provides better care for the patient,” he said. “They receive the best of both worlds through the collaboration of interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery.”

Zhao lauds the new technology, stating that the use of angiography has already proven worthwhile. During a recent bypass, the “after” picture was able to show surgeons that the clip, placed on the graft to stop bleeding, was actually too close to the artery, which comprised the graft and could potentially harm the patient's health.

“The mammary artery has a lot of branches and is the only revascularization conduit that prolongs life,” Zhao said. “In time, that graft would have become occluded and it would not have been discovered for several months or even years if it was not for the Hybrid OR. By doing the post-bypass angiography, you are 100 percent sure the patient has perfect grafts”
