O que é a Aortic surgery by mini sternotomy

It is the surgery to correct an aortic aneurysm, indicated when the dilation grows and reaches more than 5 cm in length. Depending on the state of the aortic, it may need to be replaced. This surgery is performed by highly specialized surgeons using minimally invasive techniques.

Descrição do procedimento

At the beginning of the procedure, a mini-sternotomy of approximately 8 centimeters in length will be performed, where clipping equipment will be introduced in the anterior and posterior parts of the aneurysm. A small camera, which generates images in very high definition, is then inserted to offer a wide view to the surgeon.

A prosthesis, usually made of dacron, will be placed at the dilatation site and the necessary anastomoses will be performed. In some cases, it is necessary to remove the coronary arteries and, after the procedures, perform the reimplantation, the so-called Bentall operation.
If the aortic valve presents problems resulting from the aneurysm or degeneration, it will be replaced by a mechanical or biological prosthesis, according to parameters such as age, presence of other diseases and other medical guidelines.

The use of the minimally invasive approach makes the hospital stay an average of 5 days. With less pain and discomfort, the patient can return to their daily activities in no time.

The presence of an aneurysm in the ascending aorta brings significant changes in a person’s life, such as restrictions on more intense aerobic activities, weight lifting, and the use of various control medications. After the surgery and the adaptation period, you will be free to practice more activities, you will breathe better, you will no longer have chest pain and you will have quality of life again.

The duration of a mini-sternotomy aortic surgery is normally 120 minutes. Patients are discharged after 4 to 6 days.
Regarding work activity, after XX days the patient will be able to return to work. Normally, full mobility recovery is at the end of XX and moderate physical activity at XX.
