Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery - Causes and Risk Factors


Minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) may not necessarily be an appropriate treatment option for every patient. For examples, patients who have other serious medical conditions or lung disease, a small rib cage or require other cardiac procedures, are not suitable to go for a minimally invasive surgery. MICS is also generally not performed for complex cases that require a combination or multiple surgeries, such as a combined valve and CABG surgery.

It is important for patients to discuss with their doctors on their suitability for any treatment option.

Patients would have to undergo thorough assessment by our doctors to determine an appropriate treatment option to achieve the best outcome for patients.
