Many patients fear heart surgeries and are not willing to undergo surgery
until other organs are affected by heart failure. In fact, all operations have risks.
In routine cardiac surgery, the risk of operation is less than 5% and the success rate is more than 90%.
The risk can be even lower with good preoperative preparation and evaluation.
In addition, not all patients with heart disease need to be treated with skin-cut and open chest surgery.
If they can be regularly followed and take medication under proper maintenance, the speed of heart deterioration can be slowed down.
Once the cardiologist recommends heart surgery for you, you should discuss the pros and cons with your surgeon.
Don't miss the golden time of treatment.
