ORLive Program Discusses Ideal Procedure for High-Risk Cardiac Patients

FARMINGTON, CT--(Marketwire - Feb 14, 2012) - In the past, total arch replacement was considered to be one of the most risky cardiac procedures because the patient had to be put on a heart-lung machine and blood flow to the head and body were temporarily stopped (circulatory arrest) after the patient had been cooled to a very low temperature. Today, the Hybrid Arch Debranching approach has dramatically lowered the morbidity and risk of total arch replacement for aortic aneurysms. The University of Maryland Medical Center presents a webcast featuring a Hybrid Arch Debranching operation. The surgery is performed by Teng C. Lee, M.D., assistant professor of surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Aortic arch aneurysms are traditionally treated with open surgery, which involves putting the patient on a heart-lung machine temporarily stopping blood flow to the head and body. The hybrid arch debranching repair is less invasive than the traditional surgery and has a lower risk.
