Possible complications:

  • Stroke (less than 3%)
  • Heart attack during or after surgery
  • Closure of new bypass grafts
  • Bleeding from the tissues inside the chest
  • Infection at incision sites, newly placed artificial valves, or urinary bladder. Therefore, we use antibiotics before and after surgery.
  • Irregularities of the heartbeat
  • Lung or kidney problems, especially if there is history of disease in these areas.

These problems are usually temporary, but may require prolonged ventilator support, or the use of kidney dialysis. We will discuss such situations with patients and their families before starting "extraordinary" treatments,.Your cardiologist and cardiac surgeon will discuss this subject with you prior to surgery.
